Leftover Turkey 5K

 I ran our club's annual Leftover Turkey 5K in Huntsville this morning - just as the rain was ending.  Tough course, hilly and rough sidewalk.  I finished in 52:30 and was first in the 80 and over age group.  I also won a $25 gift card door prize.  This was my 67th race in 2022.

Friends of the Running Community 5K

I ran a 3rd Thanksgiving race in Montgomery County this morning and earned a pine cone trophy.  It was the Friends of the Running Community 5K on the same course as the Sunday Night 5K.  I ate too much yesterday and finished the race today in 48:08.

Run Thru the Woods 5 Miler

This morning, I ran the Thanksgiving Day Run Thru the Woods 5 Miler in The Woodlands for the 21st year in a row.  I finished in 1:22:01, my slowest time in this 21 years.  I was 4th of 4 in the 75 and over age group.  There were over 4,100 registered runners,  so I got to visit with a lot of good friends.

Thanksgiving eve run

 With Thanksgiving races the next three days, I went to the park early this afternoon and ran 3.2 miles on the trails.  When I arrived at the park, I ran into Becky, my good running buddy from Hempstead.  She was there to take her visiting Mother on a hike.  We had a good visit.

Cold and rainy

 It was in the low 40's and raining when I got to the park early this afternoon to run.  Got in 3.1 miles, mostly on the park roads in the camping area.  Saw a lot of campers who looked like they were having a miserable time.

Later Sunday afternoon

 I had a plumbing job at the house today, so I did not get out to the park until later this afternoon.  No rain and the trails were in good shape, even though it rained all day yesterday.  Got in 4.3 miles on the trails.

Conroe Turkey Trot 5K

 I ran the Conroe Turkey Trot 5K this morning.  Someone cut off part of the course and it ended up being 2.8 miles., rather than 3.1.  I ran through the finish line and kept going until I got to the 5K distance.  My official finish time was 41:32 and I was way down in the 60 and over age group.  Cold and rainy the entire race.

Me and those trees

 I went to the park early this afternoon and ran 4.5 miles on the trails and no trips and falls or falling trees.  When I got home, I proceeded to cut off a large limb that fell and was hanging from the tree in my back yard.  Well, it fell on me.  While I had no broken bones, I got a gash on the top of my head.  I bandaged it up and opted not to go to the ER.  I suppose that I will be wearing a cap for the next couple weeks, rather than explaining my unsafe work habits.
