Race Recap: RAM Racing’s Turkey Trot

I love signing up for the Turkey Trots the past few years because:

  1. It forces me to get up and workout
  2. It hinders my drinking abilities the night before
  3. It allows me to either eat more later and not feel as guilty OR eat less later because I was SO healthy earlier

This was a first time for this race – part of RAM Racing’s 2015 All Access Pass basically. I am not going to lie, the North Shore 13.1 Marathon was SO hilly I was NOT prepared for it, so I was pretty petrified around any turn that reminded me of it, which got me a bit nervous of everything.

The Weather: 

  • The weather was & still has been unseasonably warm, a light jacket, pants, ear muffs, gloves & long sleeve jacket were all I needed – and probably didn’t even need ALL of that.

The Course: 

  • This course is bumpy & hilly – it was not my favorite. I LOVE running past insanely huge houses, don’t get me wrong, but I felt like every 5 seconds I was either inclining or descending and that was not so ideal – I realllllllly felt the burn.

The Gear: 

  • I threw on my Chicago Half Marathon long sleeve, Ballou Skies tank, my Nuun hat, some running gloves even though we received MORE this time, compression socks & my new SOAS Racing headband & was good to go.. slash sweating.
Race Stats:
  • Time: 00:55:43 *New 10k PR!
  • Overall: 368 out of 893
  • Female:152 out of 503
  • 25-29:20 of 91

Next race? I’ve got a 2 month gap before potentially signing up for the F3 events half marathon, then January & February bring on the IRONMAN training!
