Turkey Trot 10K Recap + First Postpartum Win

11/15/14 - Turkey Trot 10k - 40:51 for 1st overall person (11 weeks postpartum)
2 mile w/u, 1.5 mile c/d


As much as I hate to say it, I was a tiny bit disappointed with this race. It was suppose to be more of a "see where I am" type effort, but I got a little too competitive in the first half mile and I paid for it big time. Never mind that the course was a little bit short (let's just forget that part) but I also had a 7:00 mile thrown in there...not something that I'm super proud of.

I ran the first mile fartlek style. When the gun went of a couple of guys sprinted in front of me. After about 400m they started huffing and puffing loudly and it was clear that they were working too hard. I passed everyone with the exception of the winner of the 5k, running the first half mile a little over 5:30 pace and the second a little over 7:30 pace to try and fix the damage. It didn't work, after about mile 3 I was pretty much toast. With no one around me to share in…
