While some may be preparing themselves for Thanksgiving, my main focus this week are my two upcoming Thanksgiving races!! Earlier this year I signed up for a back to back Thanksgiving runs –The Nitro Turkey, and Quarry Turkey hosted by Brazen Racing. As I’ve sticking with my new years resolution of becoming a healthier and happier me, I like to put my new evolved body to the test. Pushing it in something performance wise, in a community of others with similar goals. I love the atmosphere and energy races bring. It’s a great positive gathering who are all running for something or another.
I’ve strategically planned out my races all of 2015. The turkey races are the third and second to last races of the year, and I plan to crush them completely! I’ve been pushing myself so hard this year to keep a healthy mind and body, and I’d like to thank my success to that to my dedication and focus to running. The planned out runs holds me accountable to my fitness goals, and training. This Thanksgiving will mark my last 10K before entering the world of Half Marathons. I can’t be anymore excited. I’ve ran 10Ks well enough everyday that I know my body is able to handle the entire 13.2 miles.
If you’ve embraced a healthier lifestyle this year I applaud you in your achievements!! It’s very hard to stick with your fitness goals because of all the temptations of sweets, carbs, and all naughty foods out there! Especially now, during the holiday season — which is the primary reason I planned out my races during this time!! Once you block out all the temptations of naughty foods, stress, and control a strict sleeping schedule, you have everything in the bag..
Good luck to those who have upcoming races this holiday season! I digitally cheer you on, your focus to a healthier and happier lifestyle!
