Frozen Turkeys

Joe and I are participating in our city’s annual 5k Turkey Trot tomorrow. It starts at 8 a.m., which means we need to be there by 7 a.m. I don’t even want to think about how cold it will be. Joe says it’s ironic that I’m participating because I don’t eat turkey and I can’t trot. But, at least I’m getting out there and walking it! It may take me twice as long as Joe, but I can do three miles in pretty good time. This is the second “race” I’ve done, and I’m pretty excited about it. But, like I told Joe, I’m just doing it for the shirt! Joe has orders to come in first for his age group. The winners of each age bracket get a frozen turkey. We’re going to donate it either to a community dinner being held tomorrow or, if they don’t have enough time to cook it, to our local homeless shelter.

    Very cool! I imagine you will stay warm as long as you are moving. Not that I would know. I have never done a walk let alone a trot. Good luck and have fun.

    You’ll do fine, a 5K isn’t THAT bad, plus when you’re moving you won’t notice the cold, just dress in layers!
