Turkey Trot!

The Pittsburgh Turkey Trot 5K was a blast! I expected to see lots of turkeys, but I was the only one in full dress (although there were a few hats). The costumed run was a whole new avenue of fun that I had not yet explored -- it added a whole new element of fun. Despite the extra drag, I posted a pretty good time of 22:12 for a 7:09 pace. I look forward to the day that I can do a race of any length at a sub-7:00 pace. I came in 4/89 in my age group and 170/1629 overall (see Results). As I crossed the finish line the announcer made a remark about me being the first turkey to finish the race. Unfortunately, there was no turkey category!

Warming up; coming into the finish.

One of the few other folks displaying true spirit!
