FGCU The Gobbler 5K. Great Turkey Trot! Alico Arena facilities available pre-race. Easy drive and parking. Not too heavy a crowd (319 finishers) like the Cape Coral Hospital Turkey Trot. Fast, easy course around the FGCU campus. 62 degrees/78%/NE9. Made for a good time and good time! Happy Thanksgiving!
Did the Freedom 5K on the Fourth as motivation to run in prep for a September triathlon. Over the Cape Coral Bridge and back. Evening storms the night before brought the temp at race time to 77 degrees, but the 95% humidity at the start, at 7 am, still made for a challenge. I don't know why I expected to best my Turkey Trot time, on a flat course with temps in the fifties, on this humid day on a bridge. Of course, I didn't, and I was humbled by two younger ladies at the line (I did hold off a hard charging 62 year old woman!). I think I'll do this one again!
