Great Gobbler

The Great Gobbler

Not only is Thanksgiving a day to indulge at the dinner table with friends and family, it’s also the busiest running day of the year.  More people compete in races on Thanksgiving than any other day of the year.  Runnababe Lisa Cary was no different.  Hopping in the Chesterfield Turkey Trot for the umpteenth time, Lisa strode away with the title.  Around 3500 athletes toed the line on the brisk, breezy morning, looking forward to building up their appetite for the day ahead.  The enthusiasm carried Lisa through a quicker first mile than expected.  In the middle of base work, she ran her fastest mile in months.  Finding herself in a solid pack of guys, they pushed through the sneaky hilly course at a quick clip.  Fluctuating anywhere from 20th up to 10th, Lisa was able to hold on to 14th place overall.  Her 17:47 was good enough to finish almost 2 minutes in front of the next female.

Hope all our Runnababez out there enjoyed a great Thanksgiving with family and friends.
