But this time, it isn't because of an injury.
I'm not racing tomorrow even though I've long had plans to run a turkey trot. At first, I'd planned to run a local turkey trot with friends. Our plan was to stay local for Thanksgiving this year and so I would run a 10K to start the day. Superstorm Sandy changed everything and now we're headed to Long Island for the holiday instead.
So I found a 5 mile turkey trot on Long Island that I'd run several years ago. But, unfortunately, registration closed before I got a chance to get myself together and register. You snooze, you lose. I snoozed and lost.
No turkey trot for this happy runner.
Still happy, though. I'll map out a run and head out tomorrow morning anyway. The weather is supposed to be perfect so why not?
Just go easy on the mashed taters.
