Turkey Trot 2011

One of my many goals for this year was to RUN in a 5K.  My Mom and I decided that the Turkey Trot would be the best race to participate in due to my schedule.  We did pretty well for our first 5K, running an average 13.09 minute mile. I'm very proud of us, considering a year ago mom and I were both overweight and couldn't run AT ALL!   We had alot of fun.  I am definately going to participate in many more 5K/8Ks.  Here are some pictures I took prior to starting:

mom was so cold she decided to snag a turkey costume and join the rest of the crazies!!

she's hot!

There were 661 people dressed like a turkey (including my mom) participating in the Guines World Record for most people dressed up like turkeys at one time.

Gobble Gobble!

It was a great way to start our Thanksgiving.  I think this might be a new tradition!!

Awesome girl!! Running is one of my favorite things ever! I would love to run a 5K together- I am currently researching which one I will run in December. :)
