Looking forward to Sunday’s Gobbler Grind

I’m really looking forward to this weekend’s Gobbler Grind. Kate and I will run the half marathon with Maggie, our 15-year-old.

It will be the first race I’ve run alongside our daughter. Maggie’s done at least one 5K with Kate, but I’ve never kept pace with her in the races we’ve done together; she always streaks ahead with her brothers, leaving me in the dust.

I haven’t done a lot of training for Sunday’s race, but I should be fine. I suspect we’ll run 12-minute miles, and I was able to log seven miles without difficulty yesterday in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens at an average pace of 9:49.

This year’s Gobbler Grind will be here before you know it! Look for a post and pictures Sunday evening.

Happy running!
