Santa at the race
I ran a 5 mile Turkey trot in Brooklyn this morning with my friend Utpal. It was quite cold, but not too bad. My time was 39 :36, which was 3 minutes faster than last year, very happy with that. Utpal ran 42:27, his first race other than the Marathon in 10 years we figured. Santa was near the finish line cheering people on. I was very happy with the speed I had in the second half of the race and ran fast than I expected. Which just goes to show I can still surprise myself.
