SO this Thanksgiving I decided to change it up a little and participate in a 5k race. Usually I tell my girlfriend I am at my families house, and my family I am with my girlfriend, and use the day to basically do absolutely nothing but sit around and watch football in my underpants!! YEA!!! GOOD TIMES…
But anyway, this year I decided to do the run. We got great weather and an even greater turnout. I think my time was around 26:10 or so. I had hoped to go a little faster as the last few months I have been running in Pennsylvania and I thought running the hills there would speed me along when I got back to flat NJ… They did not!
But still it was a great time. I ran into Amy Gorman and her husband Jason who I have not seen since basically her last year at Eastern High School. Hopefully next year we get more of an EHS presence from our era. It was a great time, and nice to catch up with old friends in that Thanksgiving setting as opposed to the drunk of my ass the Wednesday before setting I usually see old friends at. Next year I hope to see even more of you! Enjoy the pictures.
2016 Update. I lost my friend Amy last year to cancer. I miss her all the time. This race got us back in contact and I was happy we stayed in better touch.
