Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

Turkey Trotting!

Happy Thanksgiving!
It is 34 degrees and rainy here today but that didn't stop us from getting out there for the Pinnacle Turkey Trot this morning.  The run follows the cart path of the golf course and would normally be a 5 mile run.  Unfortunately, we had some strong storms last night and there is one bridge that tends to get washed out during high water.  Normally this wouldn't be a problem because you are in a golf cart! Today they had to use a detour which cut off 1/2 mile of the course so the run was 4.5 miles of soggy fun!

Bad lighting but you can get an idea of the elements!
Scott, me, and Kristen post race.
I ran with my sister and brother-in-law and we had a great time.  The cold, drizzle kept us motivated up the final hills to finish the race.  I certainly feel like we all earned some extra pie for dinner!
Me and my sister!
I'm so thankful for my awesome family and all my friends that I get to share life with!!!  Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  1. Yay for you braving the elements! I was planning to run the Turkey Trot in Springdale, but I chickened out. The rain, sleet and snow were too much for me!

  2. Great job on your run!!! Happy Thanksgiving!
