I did keep tradition and ran a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day. Since we're usually in a small town for Thanksgiving, I'm used to running a race with maybe 100 people (which seems to be at least 2/3 of the population there). The race I ran in Charlotte had 8,000 people. 8,000! It was crowded to say the least. The race was an 8K (5 Miles) but a 5K (3 Miles) walk was an option as well. I talked my friend, Sairy, into slacking off and signing up for the 5K walk, but running it instead. The race turned out to be pretty fun. A little difficult maneuvering around the other 7,998 people, but once we got going, it was worth it. I'm really glad Sairy ran by my side the entire time. She was just the extra motivation I needed. I ran with a GPS for the race and once we finished, I noticed that we ran 3.44 miles. Looks like they lied to us. Clearly not a 5K. Either way, I think we would have survived the 8K....
