The day started at the "Y" in Briargate for the annual Turkey trot. We parked just down the road and walking through the parking lot my 2 girls got stopped by a TV crew for an interview. They are so stinkin cute, but just as shy - they did the interview, but were so quiet. After scouring the online archives of the news (Ch 13) - they didn't end up using the footage. Oh well - they don't need the fame of being asked what their favorite part of Thansgiving was - although for what it's worth - one answered "green beans", the other said "apple sauce".
Did the (so called) 1K w/ my littlest - a comfortable 1/2 mile. Then shortly after along with about 2800 of our closest friends I ran w/ my oldest daughter in the 5k - a great effort from her, maintained a steady pace throughout and did 27:3x. #12 ran on ahead and he chip timed a 21:0x. Great result for him.
Then we literally hauled off out of there, raced home, cleaned up, drove to the airport and flew to Philly. After 3+ hours landed, jumped in a car and drove 3 1/2 plus hours to my wife's family reunion. (near Williamsport). Arrived at 1 am. A very long day.
We are here for a few days. There are some runners amongst the Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and hangers on. So at 7:30 we stumbled on to a trail. My son and I gave everyone a couple minutes head start - then took off, uphill. Our favorite. Apparently no-one else likes hills like we do and we passed them in a couple of minutes. Following a carefully drawn map - insert: a couple of lines on a napkin - we cruised 4 1/2 miles. Some nice rolling terrain. Was good to run w/ my son again.
Then on to the feast. Need to run again tomorrow - feast was good.
