Turkey trot San Jose! ON THANKSGIVING Morning

Hey guys!! So I'm all signed up for the Turkey trot 10k! I'm inviting everyone who wants to do either the 10k or the 5k is welcome to come. Jamal is doing it as well and we're aiming for an under 55 minute finish for the 10k which is about a pace of about a 9 mile/min or less. The turkey trot itself is in San Jose. But Jamal and I are planning on meeting in Sunnyvale at a local Starbucks and driving together from there! Hope to see more people out there, even if you want to do the 5k or 10k slower don't let that stop you from joining us!!! this race is the morning of Thanksgiving so please keep that in mind. The 10k starts at 750 am i believe the 5k is at 8am. I'm thinking we'll meet at the Starbucks at 615/620 and aim to leave in 1 or multiple cars no later than 630. By the time we get there and parked I'm guessing it'll be about 7/715 walk to the start line and get ready to run run run :D

    I just got the emailer that we can get our bibs tomorrow and Wed at Sports Basement to avoid the lines. If you're a popsicle before the race, it makes for a really tough start. I do agree that 1 car is a great idea for the ride there. The ride back is good if they give us T-shirts!

      GAWD! I was placed in the "Veteran" category. Just 'cuz I'm over 40 doesn't mean I'm not young at heart!!

    I'll be running the 5k, which starts at 8:30am. I'll head out there a little later. Hopefully I can join you all on another race.
