For the last two years we have done the Dallas Turkey Trot but this year I didn't feel like running 8 miles so we switched to the race in Fort Worth which was a 10K. For five dollars more we got to upgrade from a long sleeve cotton shirt to a tech shirt. We left the house at 7:15 and when we arrived at the race site the temp was a chilly 48.
We were looking for portapotties but found the flag for the start of the race. Never did find them until we crossed the finish line. I even heard someone comment that they had never been to race that didn't have portapotties! So I guess I wan't the only one searching.

I was liking this race before it ever started. They were giving out free hot chocolate so I ditched the cup of Starbucks I had gotten free and opted for the chocolate. Can't believe I dumped a Starbucks out.

This was a great course through some beautiful neighborhoods. There were lots of people out cheering and we asked a nice lady if she would take our picture.

There were more hills on this course than I thought there would be and so I was glad to see the big turkey at the finish line. I crossed the finish line with a time of 1:24:10, good enough to take third place in my age group. We had a great time running together and will definitely do this next year.
