Leftover Turkey 5K and First Responder Half Marathon
We had our club's annual Leftover Turkey 5K yesterday morning. I finished the hilly course in 38:14. Then, I drove to Waco for the First Responder Half Marathon this morning. The course avoids Cameron Park, so it is flat. I last ran this race in 2013 and finished in 2:56:53. This morning, I finished in 2:41:35, making it my fastest half marathon in recent years. I was 2nd in the 70 and over age group. The finisher medal was a police car, complete with battery powered flashing lights. This was my 79th half marathon.
