First Turkeys, then Reindeer

After participating in a turkey trot 8k on Thanksgiving, I decided to run in a Reindeer Romp 5k this weekend. It was a Girls on the Run event with close to 1,200 participants.

Girls on the Run, or GOTR, is program that uses running to teach 8-12 year old girls about self esteem and healthy lifestyles. The event consisted of both regular runners and girls participating in the GOTR program running with their mentors.

All of the fast people must have been somewhere else. I was surprised to finish 3rd in my age group. I'm not fast. I was tickled to finish third -- and yes, there were more than three entrants in my age group!

This event was well done and I had a nice time. I would do it again.
