After the Seattle Turkey Trot, 2018

IMG_4571  Trying to find my car which was parked somewhere – I was only vaguely familiar with the neighborhood and couldn’t remember exactly where I had parked the car in my rush to get to the start line and registration.

I don’t seem to have a photo of the 7000 eager runners, trotters, walkers and dogs just before the start.  Another comment – it was a reasonable day for doing this caper.  I did it 4 years ago – a challenge then and a challenge this year but lots of fun and hopefully it will be a nice day next year and I can do it again.
