Evanston Flying Turkey 5K - November 28, 2013

On Thanksgiving I ran in the 3rd annual Flying Turkey 5K, which is held along Evanston's lakefront. They give you a special button if you can beat the guy dressed like a turkey, but he's too fast.

It was a great course, and while it was cold for spectating (25 degrees) it was great for running. I finished second in my age group with a 23:15 time, about 30 seconds faster than last year. My coach (Heather Collins) specializes in coaching old people. Or at least she should.
