Happy Thanksgiving - Wattle Waddle 5 Miler

On Thanksgiving morning, instead of staying all nice and warm in my bed, I got up and met up with some friends to kick off the day with a 5 mile race, the Wattle Waddle 5-Miler in Emmitburg, MD.  This race raises money for Hope Alive, Inc.  They are a non-profit, non-denominational Christian ministry serving homeless women and children.

Races are so much nicer when freezing you're with friends :)

Don't we look cold ??
This race is always a fun one!  Instead of being mobbed with 3000 runners at our local Turkey Trot, this race brings in about 300 runners.  Much more relaxed and enjoyable way to start the day! 

Our awesome Run, Mama, Run ladies with the "Turkey"!  
A few fun pictures with the Turkey !

Great race, great friends!  That's something to be thankful for !!
