Total Distance

I woke up and ran from my house over to the Barrel Roll Trail.  Collins put on a little Turkey Trot race which brought out about 15 people.  Steve brought a clock and Kendra yelled "Go" so we took off for the run.  I chased Steve for the first little bit and then just relaxed the rest of the way.  James wasn't too far behind me but it was a lot of fun to do this.  I think he wants to do this as a tradition each year.  I met a few new people which was nice.  I ran home after the race and then made sure I was geared up and ready for Thanksgiving.

I have so many blessings in my life.  I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving.  Don't eat to much turkey!

Sorry I missed it this morning. I just couldn't get away at that point with family staying here. Good job man... a win in 09 is more than I have so far...

What was the distance of the race? Either I'm missing something or you were really flying to get to the turkey (13 mi in 39 min!). Have a great Thanksgiving!

13 miles in 39 min is nothing for Logan. He's a machine. Nothing can stop "Burro Blanco".

Its nice to know that me running at a really hard effort is Logans "relaxed" effort. Giant turd.

LOL James! That was a nice morning run with you all. Too bad there weren't more there to enjoy the great morning.

Good to know you took it easy Logan.....
