We were Turkey Trotters this year!!! Lori and I have been "training" for this for a few months now and today was the big day. We ran the oldest running foot race in America and were part of a record setting 10,000+ runners this morning. The 8k (5 mile) race was a BLAST! We had a great time people watching, and everyone was so excited to be part of this event.
Our times weren't that shabby either... 1:01:28 which placed us 7708th and 7709th (hahaha). It was some great weather and I think we've got a new tradition :) The family came out to support us and kept us motivated...I think we both felt pretty accomplished and proud of ourselves.

I think everyone, no matter which candidate you voted for, is experiencing mixed feelings about this election. I am proud to be an American and proud to be a part of the generation that looked past skin color to elect a leader. I am hopeful that a new direction will lead us to a stronger future. It saddens me that the diversity and fear generated by the media has left so many terrified of this outcome. But, I am optimistic that we will come together as a country, respect and support our new President, and work together to make the changes we need to. It's going to take time, and not all of it will be possible. I hope he will get a full 8 years to make good on his promises...because he has a lot of work to bring us out of the damage done in the last years!
