happy thanksgiving, everyone! i rolled out of bed this morning around 9:00 and hit the streets of wichita near my in-law's house. i walked a half mile or so south and then turned around and ran for all i was worth in an attempt to be a bit more competitive in this year's "feed the turkey" 5K. i had to do better in order to beat Ray J. and Brian A.
i ran up seneca for half a block and then turned into the parking lot at the baseball diamond. i ran across the lot and then along the sidewalks to the south high parking lot. i turned north and ran up to 33rd.
turning west on 33rd, i ran back and forth for a mile or so, circled around the block and then, toward the end of my 5K, turned north to finish near "home".
i hit stop at 3.1 miles with a time of 22:49. not 100% sure, but this may be a PR. i'll have to go look. i know it's only the second time i've been under 23 minutes. i guess we'll see in a while whether that's good enough to beat ray and brian!
