No run yesterday evening but will go out tonight. It’s been absolutely gorgeous during the day, but it’s tough for me to get out and run during the workday. I sweat too much, and showering at work is kind of a hassle.
While doing a little digging around on the Internet, I found this:
In 2003 I ran the Ann Arbor Turkey Trot with my dad. It was the last race we ran together. Since then he’s been unable to run due to a condition with his spine and back.
There was a 5K and 10K. If you ran both, you ran “The Iron Turkey.” My dad and I ran the 5K together and then I ran the 10K solo. For being fairly new to running races at the time, I don’t think I did too badly for two in a row.
At one point I had a bad digital photo of the two of us post-race. Since this was nine years ago, I doubt the photos are still archived anywhere. I don’t even remember if it was an official race photographer. Through the moving associated with my divorce, the file was lost. I would do just about anything to get that photo back.
But I still have the memory, so that’s something. And now I have the official chip time. But most of all, I’d love to be able to run with my dad again.
