About NATRA Blog

This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

Turkey Predictor Run

Greg, Alexis & Mike, Margaret and Bruce met on a very cold & windy morning to run from Flag Middle School up to the annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot at Buffalo Park. Along the way, since Neil didn't show up, they stopped and POUNDED on his door before proceeding. Now, we hear Neil wasn't there, but someone was. Is that someone mad at us or Neil?

The turkey trot had scads of brave runners. Many of us apparently finished much faster than our predicted times. (Numb faces will do that.) Alexis' and Margaret's maternal instincts took over when they caught up with a little boy who went out too fast and was upset; finishing with him in a little under 20 minutes. None of us were close to winning and it was COLD, so everyone jogged home for their various, awesome Thanksgiving celebrations.(Thanks to Bruce Higgins for the post, and yes, Diana did hear the knocking at 9 AM, but she thought it was a dream - until now of course!)
