Happy Thanksgiving...

I did my 5 mile race today, and did OK.  I was hoping for 7 minute miles and ended up doing 7:08/mile.  Some of that was because I started too far back in the pack.  There were about 1500 people and the roads were really skinny so I was stuck in traffic for a little over a mile before I could really run my pace.  My first mile was 7:30 and I thought I could make that up but I never really could.  This is good though.  I realized that I didn't have the kind of reserve I thought I did, so I know I need to rededicate myself to training more / harder.

On the plus side, I had a great day with my family, didn't have to go to work, enjoyed the company of my kids, and ate 3 days worth of food.  Tomorrow we're back at.

Just don't stop running....
