Turkey trot race report

Hello, this is E-Diddy with the Turkey Trot race report. 
The weather was perfect. (Read, not cold).
I totally didn't drink enough water and my abs were on fire!
I crossed the finish line with a smile anyways! Then it was time for photos!
My pace was spot on but had I drunk adequate supplies of water the pace would have been a pr. 
Then I had a coffee. 
Awesome start to thanksgiving! Happy thanksgiving friends! This is E-Diddy reporting on the Turjey Trot!

How to have a Pirate's Thanksgiving in three easy steps

Step one: drink rum. 
It can rum spiked apple cider or diet and rum. But rum must be on the menu. 
Step two: wear a pirates hat. 
Me last year. This year I could wear the same shirt. We shall see. 
Step three: Eat crab legs. 
There you have a Pirate's Thanksgiving. Step one should be repeated all day long. Lots pictures should be taken to document the fun!

Route 66 Half Marathon Race Report

We had no issues with packet pickup but as we left, the line was dumb long. 
And then picking up the jackets was on the opposite side of the convention center. To make sure you don't miss any of the expo vendors, I'm sure. 
They were giving away free beer!
FYI, Atlantis is the in the Bahamas. I'll be back, next year. 
At 3 pm, I took to the stage for the bloggers forum. The moderator Cheryl asked us all questions and we took about 45 minutes sharing about our blogs. I was on periscope!
That was one of the coolest moments of the weekend! 
Then Bart Yasso took a photo of some Runhers girls. I didn't wear my shirt because I wanted to wear the Rolling Stones shirt. I thought that would make me look cool and rock n roll for the forum. 
After all that expo fun, I had to get carbed up for the race. I think I did well. I didn't sleep well because I was way too excited for the race. I prepared and trained hard. 
It was cold and the hood was necessary as we waited out turn to start. I found lots of shots along the course and I had tons of cheers from my Facebook friends. It was a blast!
This was the best when I stopped the Nike app. I ran my best time ever! The chip time was 2:45:03. That beats my other time by 3 minutes!
I did get lots of compliments on my turkey legs. The jacket is fantastic and fits me perfectly. Next year there will be another jacket. I'm pretty sure I'll run this race again.
