The other day I was thinking about the Thanksgiving run I am doing tomorrow. This is probably the 10th time I have done this race. It is a tradition. I started in High School when I did it with a couple girlfriends. The highlight for us that year was the free Krispy Kreme donuts at the end (they had just opened the first KK in Sacramento). Then I started walking the 5K every year with my mom.
Last year was the first year I did the 10K since it made the most sense due to marathon training. This year I am once again doing the 10K. I have the marathon relay coming up next weekend and I want to make sure I get in a 10K before. I have been running only 3-4 miles at a time, so one 6 mile run before the relay will be good.
While I was thinking about this annual tradition, I realized The Run to Feed The Hungry is the only race I have repeated. I know a lot of people have certain races they repeat every year, but for some reason I don’t. I like new challenges and new courses.
I am planning to run the Sactown 10 Miler again in the spring, so maybe I am ending the streak of not repeating races.
Are you a race repeater, or are you one and one like me?
HAPPY ALMOST THANKSGIVING
