I am totally addicted to virtual runs. 🏃‍♀️ 

I don’t know what it is about Thanksgiving, but it makes me sign up for wayyyyy too many virtual Turkey trots. 🥴😆

Last year I did three. 

This year I signed up for FOUR plus Burn the Bird with #BooCrew. 😎

This last week I completed three 5ks! My fastest time was 47 minutes, which in comparison to last year’s 75 mins is QUITE the improvement. 

I plan to do my first 10K on Thanksgiving with megan.b159 and my goal is just to FINISH. I’m a little scared, but even if I walk or crawl, I’m determined to complete it. 

It’s amazing to think that last year a 5k was a HUGE challenge for me, and this year it doesn’t scare me at all. 

Just goes to show you—DO THE THINGS THAT SCARE YOU. You will totally surprise yourself!
