This weekend I signed up for my first non marathon sanctioned race – the Mesa Mi Amigo's Turkey Trot. It is a 10k race in Mesa, AZ. As many of you know, I have not been running due to either a strained calf muscle or more likely a stress fracture of my tibia, so this race should be interesting. I am going to try to run a mile tonight to see how it goes. My goal will be to lightly jog this 10k, however if I have to walk it with my wife that will be fine too. Unfortunately I know that I will be no where close to my goal of finishing a 10k in under 45 minutes. However, I get a finishers ribbon and a free tshirt for my $20 entry fee – what could be better!?
