I have decided that I will run the Fountain Hills Turkey Trot 5k on Thanksgiving day this year. After the weak New York Marathon performance, I need to regain my mental confidence. Our friends Don and Debbie are in the organizing committee for that race, I’d like to support them and the race. Fountain Hills is hilly; it will be a tougher course, but I’ll target something around 7-minute-mile pace for the 5k. It should be achievable.
I rested today! The weather in Arizona has turned to perfect running weather. This will last all through the winter.
I will start training for the London Marathon sometime in December. I expect to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon, the Phoenix 10k and a couple of other races as my warm-ups.
