Thanksgiving Day 5K
November 28, 2019
The annual free Thanksgiving Day 5K was moved at the last minute this year, since the Gazaway family recently moved and was unable to host this year’s event.
I helped supply bibs, while others helped organize and set up a course, starting and finishing at Prairie Hills Middle School in Hutchinson.
Usually, there are 250-300 people in attendance, but the changed venue and gross weather resulted in only 30 runners this year.
No worries. Still good to get in some miles with friends before spending the day with family eating everything in sight.
I ran the whole race with my friend Lisa, who is quite a bit faster than I am at this point. But we had fun running together and chatting, eventually tying for third place overall.
Splits: 8:20, 8:18, 7:53, 7:17 (0.1)
