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.
