This year we started off Thanksgiving by running the Turkey Trot in Cape Coral. I ran the 5k, Emily and Sarah the 1 mile and Ty and Katie did the Tot Trot.
I ran with Jenna, Kelly, Kelly and Tanya. It was such a nice way to start off Thanksgiving day. I am thankful for each of these good friends and so glad to have them as part of my life.
A cheering section is very important. I love starting off a fun and hearing, "Go Mommy!" My mom is always very supportive and loves to come cheer us on. The route was around my in-laws house. Two times while I was running I saw them waving and cheering. It was great! My wonderful father in law even heated up the hot tub for me to enjoy after race. It was over 100 degrees and so, so, so nice!

This is the start of 2nd heat of the Tot Trot. I am standing behind Ty and Logan. Ty is in his running stance. He practiced that many times to prepare for the day.
It is a little blurry, but you can still see the two cute little girls holding hands while running. Awww. (Katie and Chloe)
