I ran my town’s annual thanksgiving turkey trot on November 24th, it was a great. It was Thanksgiving, my birthday, and having my older sister there made it a special day. I think this was our 20th year running this race, it’s a family tradition for my sister and I.
It was my third year running it barefoot, my sister gets a kick out of all the comments and stares as we hang around waiting for the start. There was about 4,500 runners this year, the average amount, I am still the only barefoot runner out there but it’s all good. It was 32 degrees at start time, 8:00am, I wear heavy winter socks while waiting, once the gun goes off, the socks come off. It was a beautiful sunny clear day, and a great way to start the day on Thanksgiving. My time was 43:34
