For years now our family tradition has been for our sons to run the Turkey Trot in downtown Dallas on Thanksgiving morning.
This is Nick and Lee after the race ten years ago, in 2003, Dallas City Hall in the background – not a very good photograph, sorry.
Photos of Lee running in 2008:
I wrote blog entries, with lots of photos, on the run in 2011 and 2012.
This year, Lee flew in from New Orleans (he’s finished up his last semester at Tulane now) for Thanksgiving and ran the Turkey Trot again (Nick was in New York with friends).
He said with finals, work, and graduation job hunting he didn’t have time to train, so he was going to take his time this year and not try and run too fast. For some reason he ran in a Pikachu costume. He said that slowed him down even more, because people (especially kids) wanted him to stop and get their photo with him.
Lee said that he really enjoyed himself, not trying for such a fast time. It wasn’t all that slow, anyway.
