The “Pre-Gorge Thanksgiving Day Race” Post

Some of us left town.  Some of us ran on our own.  And some of us downed dozens of Krispy Kreme Donuts.  And others….well they hung around town to do one of the two more well known Turkey Day running events – The Cleveland Turkey Trot Road Race, and the Penton Memorial XC Turkey Trot.  With abysmal temps and some snow still on the ground, made for a good hard day. One that was likely eclipsed by about 5pm.

Brian Kostura headed downtown for the road race:

Fun, traditional event as always! (hmm…maybe he wasn’t affected by the weather?)

And Scott Zubricky, Mike Schaefer, Aaron Henely and Team Spin’s Ray Huang put some hurt on the cross country course at Lorain County Community College in the 45th Annual Penton Memorial!

I had a great Turkey Trot –Henely, Zubricky and I all won our age groups again and I ran a course PR by 1 minute despite the snow and mud (44:02). I really do seem to thrive in that stuff!!. I was feeling so good that I tried to keep up with Henely for a while –This worked pretty well, but he dropped me after 3miles and I AM SO SORE NOW!! Gotta do some speed work occasionally I guess..

Also great to see Ray Huang from The Spin Road Team running – 2nd in AG!
