So I know you all have been waiting with bated breath for my Turkey Trot 10k results and I’m sorry to have kept you in suspense. I ran my 6.2 mile run in 52:20 and placed 1371 out of 6297 finishers. Not too shabby for a guy’s first race! However my butt-licking younger brother beat me by 1:08. I’m still convinced it’s because of the 6 year age difference. He’s a spry 17 while I’m a beaten and rundown 23. I’m convinced it was because he was juking and jumping around people like a madman. You can do those things when you’re 17. Ah the wonders of youth…
In better news I whupped my dad’s butt. He finished in 59:32. In the best news, yet not entirely unexpected, I also whupped my girlfriend’s butt! She finished in 1:00:18. Yet those small personal victories can’t make up for the pain in my bruised left foot. I don’t think I’ll be running another 6 mile race anytime in the near future. I did look good though.
Heh, all kidding aside it was a fun race. There were a ton of people in costume, my personal favorite was the person dressed up in a sumo wrestler outfit that could barely run. I got to hang out with my family. I mildly enjoyed my time spent in Detroit. It wasn’t a bad little gig. I’m pretty sure this will become an annual event and as long as I can get some sleep the night prior, I’m totally down.
