Turkey Trot

I first learned about the turkey trot in jr high, when Whitney Rudd wore the tshirt in P.E. after thanksgiving break. When she explained it was a 6 mile run. For fun. On Thanksgiving. I thought she was a flipping lunatic since I thought hell was running 1 mile.

Naturally, my adult self wanted to be that lunatic. Of course, I never really grew out of junior high so I needed someone to come with me. My dear sissy obliged, even though she ran a half marathon two weeks ago. Lunatics, I tell ya.

Noticing the awesome, well deserved pit stains

 I had never ran that far, even in training, so I was pleased I didn't walk at all.  I was expecting some sort of race day magic so I was a little bummed when I ran it at my typical pace. At least I earned my thanksgiving dinner though :)

Love it. Looks like fun. I've only read about Turkey Trot from blogs and since I want to be a cool blogger, it's been on my bucket list for a few years now too. Maybe some day I won't be pregnant/just had a baby on Thanksgiving/living 2,000 miles from Mesa.

Whitney Rudd is my cousin!! That is hilarious! Saw you at the run--My sister drags me there every year and every year I dread it. Then I am glad I did it. Glad you had fun! Now you can wear your shirt around proudly!

Jealous. Maybe next year I'll come down for Thanksgiving and do it with you guys.
