My Emotional Turkey Trot

This past weekend was rather special as I was able to run the First Annual Napa Valley Turkey Trot 5k event which supported the Salvation Army.  I was very pleased to have been given two race tickets {one for Miss Faith and myself}. The morning started out a bit chilly, but amazing for a November day in the wine country.  This particular day was special as we went as a family.  My hubby and son watching and cheering us on, while I was able to run with our daughter.  Faith and I have done a Color Run together, but this was different.  There was a special “something” about this run with her.  Maybe it was because it was her first timed race with me, maybe it was watching her excitement as we got close to the start time, maybe it was her telling me to “keep up” and not slow…  Read More…
