Turkey Trot


(photo from official race blog)

B started running at the end of summer this year, and wanted to run in a 5K sometime. He missed the summer 5Ks, so the next one he could do here in town was the Turkey Trot, a fundraiser for the Shop with a Cop program that brings gifts to children in need. Originally scheduled for the Saturday after Thanksgiving, they eventually moved it to one week later. It was around 10 degrees F outside, but B still did it! He dressed for the weather--hat, balaclava, gloves, sweats, etc. (There were a couple of runners in shorts, no hat....)

Wow kudos to B for all the running and for braving the cold!

I'm impressed that B ran in that weather. I'd like to run a 5K, but only when it's warm!

That is so awesome that he did that! I need to start getting more into excersizing and community things like that. I was thinking about doing a triatholon but some people said I would need to work my way up for that. With a full time job that's a pretty big thing to commit to. I miss everyone!
