Why on Earth did I think getting up at 6:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning to do the Turkey Run 5K Race in McDonough, GA was a good idea? At least I wasn’t the only one. Over 1,500 other people thought it was a good idea, too, including my wife, son, and many of my friends. In total, there were 11 of us morons who met at the race to sweat, get sore, and whine. (O.K., I was the one doing all the whining.)
Seriously, it was a pretty good way to start the holiday. I got up, accomplished something, had breakfast, and even managed to buy three Christmas trees – all before noon. Now, it’s off to see my fellow racers and our fans for football and a Thanksgiving feast.
