Thanksgiving tradition. I ran it as a tempo run this year since I'm just easing back into consistent training. I have run with my BIL, Brady the last few years. This year Teren and Cole joined us.

This course is freaking hard. It's very hilly. I forgot how tough it was until about 400 meters in. I started kind of slowly and worked to pick people off throughout the race. My goal was under 19 minutes. I snuck under with an 18:48. I was pleased until I found out that I got smoked by two minutes by Grayson Murphy. (She just placed 8th at the NCAA's.) But, decent effort.

Teren took second. Cole won his age group and ran a two minute pr. His cross country training is paying off.We all won a Costco pumpkin pie . . .sooooo much pie.

Your determination and diligence are a work of art. Happy Thanksgiving. I'm the older slower brother of a guy Teren ran with in high school, peace.
