Occupying Asherton Drive while Running for Seconds

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here in Charlotte, we’re enjoying ourselves Occupying Asherton Dr (my uncle’s neighborhood). Last night, we spent some time setting up some decorations:

To boot, we had race shirts that a good 20 of us wore this morning to the Charlotte Turkey Trot 8K/5K!

The good thing about having the race close, is we could leave at 8:33 and park by 8:42. The race started at 9 sharp and off we went. The first mile was congested like always, but I did a 9 min mile. The race was a lot of neighborhoods, especially miles 2-5. We had some downhill through ,Ike 2, but heading through mile 3, I felt kind of crappy. Reason? I don’t have a good one. After passing through mile 4, I realized on of the hills had been taken off course (score!! I’m all for removal of hills from races.). We hit some of town after passing mile 4 and started heading toward the finish. We hit some more neighborhood and got rid of the hill at the very end (even better!!!). We came around a corner and the finish magically appeared. I was expecting a crappy time, but the clock time was 46:34. Chip time? 46:11! A good 90 seconds better then last year. A good way to start the day before enjoying some friends, family and good food!!
