Turkey Trek 2007


Today was our first annual Thanksgiving morning trail run.... and it was pouring rain and 35 degrees! I was sure no one would show up, so I was impressed at the 15 troopers who still turned out despite this nastiness. After a couple miles, we were all warmed up, and it was still a lot of fun. The hot shower I just took has never felt so good!

Next year, we plan to have more people, sunny weather, hot drinks, and a real finish line for people to run across.

The organizers: Christine, me, and Susan.

Christine planned to walk the trail but it was so cold, she mostly ran the 4 miles! Watch out next year!

Thanks to Shaw's for donating the food for our runners!

What a great way to start the day -minus the rain! Thanks for coming up with the idea. By the way, I'm just a tad sore so now I'm thankful for Advil! Happy Thanksgiving!
