Did you run a turkey trot today?

Instead of putting our feet up and watching parades and football today, family members were up at 6 a.m., downing a cup of coffee and heading out for an early morning Turkey Trot 5K race in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Temperatures hovered at 32 degrees with morning sun brightly reflecting off last night’s rain puddles, now ice.

The Turkey Trot, repeated in many communities across America, is a  a family event. Grandparents, children, grandchildren, and the family dogs approached the starting line of the race on this brisk Thursday morning. Participants arrived sporting festive turkey attire, Indian and pilgrim outfits, and colorful spandex.Two thousand runners and walkers, up 500 from last year, were poised and ready for the starting gun.After watching Santa and his Mrs. cross the finish line, it was time to head home for lots of turkey, dressing, football and fun.

Hope your Thanksgiving was delightful and delicious!
