i'm in your town...

...runnin' your turkey trots and winnin' your trophies.

today i ran the 10k turkey trot in long beach... i was one of the only nyc runners and finished 2nd of the women, 1st in my age/gender group and 28th out of around 282. i ran a 10k personal best at 44:58, running 7:15 minute miles. it was a great run, although the level of competition was very different from that of nyrr races.

thank you to gregory and marcella, (who also happens to be my boss), for coming out and supporting me in the freezing cold... and thank you to the woman who came in third for encouraging me through miles 4-6 and complimenting my splits.
