This will be the third consecutive year we have done this race so I guess it has become kind of a tradition.
Here are my results from the last two years:
2009 - Total Time - 36:27Average Pace - 7:16/Mi
Age Group Rank - 25/143
Overall Rank - 293/2300
2010 - Total Time - 35:45
Average Pace - 7:09/Mi
Age Group Rank - 8/140
Overall Rank - 128/2266
In 2009 the weather was a perfect 45* at the start but last year it was around 75* with 95% humidity, it was awful. This explains why my overall and age group rankings were considerably stronger in 2010 but I was only 42 seconds faster. Heat and Humidity kills!
The good news is that tomorrow we are expecting extremely pleasant temperatures!
According to Accuweather the temperature in the Woodlands at 8am is supposed to be 52* and sunny with humidity at an uncomfortable 86% BUT the Dew Point is at 48* so it should feel rather crisp.
Love this day and love this race!
Also, I am quite excited to watch the Packers vs the Lions tomorrow. It has been quite some time that meaningful football has been played during the early Turky Day game in Detroit and the much improved Lions are going against the undefeated Packers. I really do not care who wins but I have Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, and Jermichael Finley on my fantasy rosters so hoping for lots of points from the Pack!
Is anyone else doing a Turkey Trot tomorrow? Rooting for the Pack or the Lions?
