Last year I didn't let them participate on the turkey trot and I never heard the end of it. So this is their first year. There were lots of parents cheering everyone on.
The girls ran, walked ran. Big M did the same. You would never know by the way he ran that less than a month ago he was training 10hrs a week for football and currently training 5 hrs a week with 1-2 games for soccer. I think he must be reserving his energy.
