We were up at 5 a.m. and out the door by 5:30 yesterday morning to get to Clearwater for the 33rd annual St. Pete Times Turkey Trot. I guess it will be the LAST annual “St. Pete Times Turkey Trot” since the newspaper is changing its name to “Tampa Bay Times” as of the new year. Maybe our race shirts will be highly collectible? And we have four of them!

This was the boys’ first 5K race, although they have done a one-mile fun run once before at a small race. This would definitely be a new experience for them, as there were over 15,000 participants in this year’s SPTimes Turkey Trot. The boys loved being part of the herd in the 5K Fun Run (for joggers, walkers, strollers, etc.). We walked the whole thing at a nice pace, finishing in about 54 minutes.

They were very proud of having done the Turkey Trot and wanted to wear their race shirts the rest of the day.
