Turkey Trot Results

It was a small gathering, but three people did join me in doing a virtual Turkey Trot during Thanksgiving weekend.  Two of my friends sent me pictures, so they got an extra entry into my little drawing.  :)

Thank you Chris, Suzie, Christine and Diane for joining me in staying active over the holiday weekend.

The winner of the prize is ... Suzie!

And some visual proof of our activities....
When I saw what the temperature was going to  be I almost decided to wait until another day to do my run.  But I knew I had to be a leader for my own event, so I bundled up and got out there.  It was a glorious sunshiny, COLD morning.  My layers kept me warm and I enjoyed the run immensely.  

 My friend, Chris, encouraged me when she said she was going to use this opportunity to get back on track.  And she literally did over the weekend, getting in her 3.1 miles on her treadmill inside.  I'm so proud of her!

Suzie inspires me, because I knew she has always been active and when I realized I was inviting her to run ... well...that's what new endings will do to a person.  :)  Knowing I can now "run" with her was inspired me to keep pressing on in my weight loss journey. 

Thanks to all who participated, even if I didn't get a picture.  Just knowing I had put my little turkey trot out there for anyone to join me helped me stay committed to getting it done.  And I'm thankful I did.
