2015 Orlando Turkey Trot


It's a testament to how busy I was in Saipan that I'm only posting photos now that I'm back in Washington, DC.  That includes photos from November, about 50 photos from Lucy's 1st birthday party in Onancock, and our Thanksgiving trip to Florida.  I'll get to the Disney photos soon, but how about a few shots from the 2015 Orlando Turkey Trot first?

It was my idea to run the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning.  The boys were all for it.  My sister and wife were not.

I've run this race before, but I think it's been about 20 years.  The race isn't timed and no one takes it too seriously, you just give them money in exchange for a t-shirt and a quick jog.


Man, I've put on a lot of weight this year.  I'm amazed Susannah recognized me.  Well, she is running for Congress.  She must have super powers.


As expected, Kevin came in first, and then me, and then Alex.  I ran my race in 31 minutes, my slowest 5K ever.  I don't think Alex and Kevin even timed their race.

It's been a while since I've run such a short race.  I ran the Richmond Half Marathon in November 2014, the Disney Marathon in January of this year, and the Rock 'N Roll Half in March.  Those three races made me never want to run again. I think a 10K might be my sweet spot these days.
