Turkey Trot

Today, my daughter Carrie and I participated in a 5k.

Over 1500 runners showed up for the Thanksgiving morning North Reading Turkey Trot.  It was chilly outside, but I was bundled up well.    I am not a fan of cold weather running.

At 7:45am runners headed to the start line. A bunch of high schoolers runners lined up in the front, followed  by  more runners and families.  

At 8:00 am…and we were off.  Carrie can beat me pretty easily, so it did not surprise me when she flew by me at the start.

 Many people were racing hard, I was “trotting” along. I enjoyed the three-mile journey around the town of North Reading. I wanted this race to be more of a fun run, rather than a competitive race.

I enjoyed having my daughter there, it made the race more fun.  It was nice bonding time.

Happy Thanksgiving
