WHERE ARE WE GOING?
Thursday, Nov. 22
North Texas Turkey Trot 10K
NO REALLY, WHY?
I'll be taking yet another crack at a 10K PR, and if this doesn't work I will try again, and again, and again, like some degenerate going all-in on every hand.
WHO ELSE IS GOING?
Among the 10K, 5K and mile, they're expecting almost 4,000 folks to show up. I'm guessing the 10K field will be a very small fraction of the total, given the general goof-off nature of turkey trots.
WHAT'S THE FORECAST?
We'll be in the low 60s with a breeze out of the south posing a challenge on a course that's largely due north-south.
HOW DO WE WIN?
Same expectations as last time: Go at least a minute under my current PR of 42:20. Put it in these terms: If I simply run the same pace as I ran the DRC Half a couple weeks ago, that's a 42:13 (before you even consider this race is less than half that distance and completely flat).
