Turkey Trot

What a huge turnout this morning. It was great. There must've been a couple thousand people there. That equates to 80,000 at a TEA party protest which means the Turkey Trot is bigger than Bloomsday!

Geoff and Josh went with me and ran way ahead of the pack. Of course it helps to be up front at the start. I ran into an old hockey teammate and learned he's thinking about playing again. And my sister, Barb, was there with some friends. I was goofing off, not paying attention to the time, saw John and Maddie, wandered around looking for Al (no luck), and ended up way in the back at the start. For me it was like starting Bloomsday--hey, it's that big now--in the red section. I didn't even start running until after the first turn.

Hopefully, tons of people equated to tons of food for Second Harvest.

Hank, I was looking for you as well. Sorry that we did not connect. I was one of the people in the bright red, yellow and black Team Blaze shirts.

It was a great morning for a run.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
