  • 3 days with family in CA
  • 0 days off

So I was in Kauai for 6 days and then I flew back on Wednesday night and ran a 5K race the next morning.  I mean, how could I not resist?  I haven't run a 5k in freaking forever, so might as well bust the rust off now, before Club XCs in just a few weeks!  The was actually incredibly fun, even if I felt sleep deprived a tad jet-lagged.  In a crit style 4-loop course, I was able to watch all the really fast women take off while I hung on for dear life with Jenn Rhines.  She finished much stronger than me, but we basically battled it out on the streets of San Jose for the first 3.5 loops of the course, before she eventually pulled away.  

Had a blast cooling down with the STC ladies and meeting some of them for the very first time!  Afterwards, I drove to the SJC airport to pick up my parents before making our vegan Thanksgiving feast.  Had a great weekend with my parents and sister visiting and got lots of farmers market time with them.  

 the Strava Track Club ladies kicked off Thanksgiving together at the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot!  I was the last place person for the team - YEAH!!
