For the third year in a row, my kids and I have run the Pelican Lakes Turkey Trot in Windsor, CO. This year, it was cold, but not snowy.
Both my daughter and I won 3rd place in our age divisions, and our prize was a pie.
It was fun, and I like the course. Proceeds go to Athletes in Tandem, an organization dedicated to helping athletes of all abilities participate in athletic events.
I love winning.
Writing contests. A $5 gift card. Uno.
Yesterday, I won a 5k.
I came in 4th overall and 1st place for adult women.
I was pretty happy with my time. It was a course of hills, but I felt the best I’ve felt running in months.
It was for a good cause and afterwards the kids jumped in blow-up castles and collected free gear. The weather was cold but my competitive spirit warmed my heart!
