There are a few races that I do every year, no matter what. This is one of those races. It used to be that the whole family ran it, there's a picture somewhere (that I can't find right now) that shows myself and my cousins all running the race one year. I'm super out of shape having just started running, but we are all together and smiling. This year it was myself, my uncle and one other cousin who ran. Some have moved away, others are no longer with us. Regardless of how untrained I am or how much I really dislike road races, this is one that I refuse to miss. This year was no exception. The weather was perfect for a 5k and it's always great to get out there with the Fleet Feet Racing Team. I have to give a huge shout out to Della who grabbed me a tutu from the cheer bin, I can't believe I left mine at home! I had a great, albeit slow race and it was a great way to start off Thanksgiving!
