Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

Turkey Trot Time!

Happy Thanksgiving!  I love the Turkey Trot!  Running on a holiday is always extra special.  The weather was much warmer this year, so the field was full (and then some).  It was so fun to start the day with the awesome Reno running community!  RTO was represented -- nice job, Eric!  The Reno Running Company pushed the pace -- way to go Aimee & Matt!  It was nice to see some R5K and NSET peeps out there too -- hi Theresa, Sam, Christy, Ashley!  Then there were the usual suspects -- great running, Lynni, Michelle, Jenny & Kathy!  I'm not sure what I enjoy more -- running the race or just hanging out with my running buddies afterwards.  Cheers to a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Let it Snow!

First snowy run since last winter!  It was pretty, but I wasn't as prepared as I should have been.  A hat and better socks were needed.  Caught me off guard, I guess.  It was a great run anyway!  Aimee and Laura know how to pick up the pace (and keep it there)!  And the Reno Running Company knows how to host a fun event.  Looking forward to the grand opening race!

What's Next?

I started this blog as a favor to WHM.  That race is over (it was awesome!).  But if you know me, you know that there are many more to come!  I have enjoyed blogging, so I plan to continue.  You might notice a few changes to the blog as I continue.  Hopefully you'll continue with me!

Happy Reading & Running!

Race Review & Re-Cap

WHM rocks!  What an awesome weekend!  The venue was perfect -- great weather and a fun course.  It always helps to run well, too!  I finished in 1:36.  Barely, but I was ready to dive across the finish line in order to get that 1:36!  7th in my age group and 47th overall.

It was fun seeing some old friends and also some blog followers -- thanks for all your support!

Everything else went very smoothly, too.  Got a cute t-shirt at the expo.  Had some good eats at some familiar places.  Did a little shopping.  Only a little, though.  I think we were too tired to do much more!  And, just hung out with some great friends! 

Looking forward to the next one!  Who's in?!?

Getting close!

So excited about the race this weekend!  Travel plans have been confirmed.  And, I have started thinking about things to do while we are there.  It's so fun visiting a place where I used to live.  I get to meet up with old friends, plus it's easy to get around since it is familiar.  Hopefully it's a lot warmer in Scottsdale than it has been in Reno lately, too!

Only 3 more days!
