Davis Turkey Trot 2009

Who were the turkeys this year? That would be Andrew, Shannon, Blake, and my parents. We all decided to participate in this year's Davis Turkey Trot race. Andrew ran the 10k portion while we walked the 5k stroller run/walk. Why did that make us turkeys? Well, the weather was in the upper 40's when we were driving to Davis. I am guessing it was in the low 50's during the race. Cold, cold, and did I say cold?

The soon-to-be used starting line:

These videos were taken with Andrew's cell phone so the quality isn't great. Unfortunately, I left my camera at home.

Here we are at the start of the race. My mom leaned over and pointed out that we were the only ones without a jogging stroller. So what if we were the lame ones. It did say run/walk on the sign up sheet. You can see us (maybe) on the far side towards the very end of the video!

A video of us walking one minute into the race. I was mouthing "my thighs hurt" to the camera. Everyone just took off running and we were left in their stroller dust:

Andrew ran the 10k portion of the Turkey Trot. Here he is finishing the race (beware, turn down your volume since I screamed for him). Also, sorry I couldn't flip the video:
