Race Review By Scott Orlando

This was my third year competing in the Mansfield Lexington Turkey Trot.  The race offers a 5K, course, 10k course, and half marathon course.  I again chose the 10K.   Weather conditions were less then ideal with strong winds and heavy rains.  The field was a little smaller then last year most likely do to the rain and a lot of registered runners electing to sleep in and skip the soggy run.   The course for all three distances is a fast and flat out and back on the paved bike trail.    I had a solid run mostly sticking to my pace goals.  I finished a little slower then last year but still very happy with my ability to push the pace the last few miles and finish 4th overall and 1st in my division.  All runners receive performance hoodies, mini pies, and finisher medals.   The race again was very well organized.

Race Review By Scott Orlando

This was my first time competing in the Hot Chocolate 15K and 5K Race.   The race is a large franchised race that is offered across the country.   The race is known for its great swag and assortment of chocolate delights that await runners at the finish line.    The race field was huge with approximately 5,000 runners between the 15K and 5K.  I ran the 15K.   The course was flat and fast as it made its way up and down High Street in the heart of Columbus.  My goal for the race was to finish averaging around a 7:45 mile pace.   This is slower then my typical race pace but I am still making my way back recovering from some set backs plus I have another 10K race 5 days later so I didn’t want to overdue it.   I started fast the first mile and then settled in at a pace around my goal speed.   The air was cold and the rain got worse with every mile.   I was feeling strong and pushed hard the last 2.5 miles to finish with a time of 1:11:10 which was a 7:39 mile pace.   I was surprised to see that I had finished 3rd in my age division in such a large race field.   The course was well managed and organized.   Finisher medals did not make it in time to be distributed and are set to be mailed with awards.
