A quiet, non-turkey related run

I didn't run this one either
Today's run (street): 4.25 miles

Today was going to be a busy day so I opted for a tour of my local roads rather than a more ambitious venue. One year ago, I ran the Long Beach Turkey Trot but decided not to participate this year. TPP, who ran with me last year, soloed today and came in first in her age group. Awesome job TPP! SIOR was going to run the Turkey Trot with her, but she had a geography-related mix-up with her registration.

It was much warmer this morning than it was on Saturday and felt much more like fall than winter when I stepped outside. I appreciated that the milder conditions allowed me to wear less layers today. No Opedix on this run. There isn't much to relate in terms of the run and nothing special in terms of performance or experience. But some runs are like that.

The rest of the day has been spent taking care of household needs. At one point, me and my daughter (who just started her own blog where she talks about sneakers) went over to H&Y to pick up some items and sample all the Korean food they cook in the isles. It was a fun thing to do on a day that has been primarily filled with errands.

Despite a crazy work schedule, I'm pleased that I was able to tally almost 18 miles this week. I'm looking forward to the coming week, where I plan to be doing less commuting and a lot more running.

  1. Hey!! It's an easy mistake! Anyone could have missed the "California" right after "Long Beach"! Or the fact that the race was on Thanksgiving and not today! Or the photograph of people running in shorts and bikinis....

    On a happier note, TPP is proving to be the runner I always knew she was. So proud of our buddy.

    1. Ibid on TPP! The NY vs. CA confusion is easy to do. I've made that mistake more than once when looking for the date of the LBTT. I've since learned to put "NY" into the search field.

    2. Aha! I'm happy to learn I am not the only one!

  2. Thanks for the kudo, ER. It was a pretty surprising day for me all around. I wish you we could all run the OB TT together one of these days.
    I can't wait to read your daughter's blog! And great mileage this week!!
