Our own One Runner kept it positive.
Kat on Track burned some calories.
I like what NYCGO said to promote the race. I will quote the whole thing....
On Thanksgiving, a day usually associated with colossal feats of gourmandization and tryptophan-induced naptime, the Prospect Park Track Club invites you to roll out of bed and run five miles at 9am. In return for their efforts, participants burn off some calories in advance of the big meal and help raise funds for the Bishop Ford track teams.
Dennis Kuczynski shows off some medals and a nice dinner.
"PR by over a minute."
Lela from a Diamond in a Rhinestone world liked the race because it was "great and rare race in that there was little sense of competitiveness or urgency in the air." Yea!
The Birders of Prospect Park even counted us!
shif whiteman in Around these footsteps ran with her friend Shavit and got swanky medals!
ChadT of Brooklynrunning's Blog had negative experience at race registration but negative splits in the race.
Bill Boyd came all the way from Central New York state and said some wonderful things
"Once the race ended, all of us runners continued through the shute after having the chips removed from our shoes and headed for the Prospect Park Pavillion. Awaiting us were Brooklyn bagels, coffee, and hot chocolate. A bagel and hot chocolate never tasted so good. Oh, the prospect park Track Club gave us all a running cap to commemorate the run, running gloves, and a gold medal. Even after being delayed by that girl, I still pulled of a victory, i finished and felt good, and earned a GOLD MEDAL with a picture of a turkey. Oh yeah. You gotta love it. I can’t wait until next year."
