Turkey STRUT

Thanksgiving at our house is usually really laid back. We wake up, watch the parades, eat breakfast, decide where we are shopping at 4am, go for a family walk, help/watch mom cook and then eat some yummy food.

Dad has decided we need a new family tradition...its called the TURKEY STRUT 5k.
Yes, the Gibbs clan will be strutin' our stuff Thanksgiving morning.
Please note, I have NEVER run a 5k. Can you believe that?!?! I have run almost ever other distance race possible, but never an official 5k race.

Reasons for agreeing to do the race:
1. I have never run a 5k
2. I want a shirt with a running turkey
3. It will make me feel less guilty eating mom's pound cake later in the day
4. I haven't run a race with Dad and Em since the Wilmington half marathon
5. Dad is really excited
6. because I need something to motivate me to get back to the gym

Wish us luck...it should be pretty entertaining!

7. You have never run a race with Greg!!!

It'll be fun! I just hope they give us food/snacks afterwards. (They may not, since it's Thanksgiving and they know we're all about to go stuff our faces. Who knows). Otherwise, Dad will be very disappointed! PS I heard the top 3 runners win TURKEYS! Go Spike!

Um I told Dad no when he asked me about the race. I am done with running but I will be happy to come cheer you guys on. If it isn't freezing :)
