A Sprint to the Finish with a Turkey Filled Stomach

I hope everyone reading this had an awesome Thanksgiving!

To my surprise, we had a light turnout at the Turkey Trots this year.  As a matter of fact, Kevin was the only one to partake in the competitive ring.  He ran the 76th Annual Manchester (CT) Road Race, a very popular and competitive 4.75 mile race.  The winner averaged 4:30/mi this year!  Kevin clocked 26:42 for 106th overall.

Saturday morning featured the NCR Trail Marathon, starting up in Sparks, MD.  It was chilly and quite windy.  Keith, battling a knee issue, had to put his legs to the test in what sources say was an all-out sprint to the finish line for 2nd place, with Keith emerging victorious in 2:53:17.  Tunde ran a solid race, coming in 22nd at 3:12:49 and winning his AG.

Sunday morning, somewhere in paradise, Robyn made a racing appearance at the Bacardi 5 Miler in Bermuda.  I can only imagine that the weather conditions were much closer to optimal this back in MD.  She ran 33:00 for 3rd.  I wonder if post-race Bacardi shots were included in the entry fee...?

We're hoping to see more people under the lights at OMHS on Wednesday evenings at 6pm for some winter workouts.  This is a great opportunity we've been provided and it only makes sense to take advantage!
