Blog-vember #18 Thanksgiving Turkey Trot Fun

Turkey Trot Fun  --Blooming Prejippie Zine

This is our second time participating in the Strategic Staffing Solutions Thanksgiving Turkey Trot. We are waiting for our particular part of the race to begin—the 10K started at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K was scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. So, while we had sent Bruce off with a hearty “We love you!” and “Good luck!”,” the rest of us needed to spend at least 45 minutes waiting to head to the starting line. While we waited, I reflected on what I liked most about the race.

This year, I feel more confident in my pre-training, I am committed to continuing my healthier and active lifestyle, and I am prepared for the challenge of “trotting” in 29 degree weather. Hence, I was pumped to get to the race this morning. Only to hurry up and wait… It was cool, though, because I got to spend time with my first-born—aka “Silent Bob”—and I got a chance to people-watch; one of my favorite activities.
