    Great race today. The neighborhood came out in a big way to support the turkey trot. Seeing a young woman runner with a tee-shirt that said she grew up eating food bank food was heartwarming. Yeah food bank! I am sending another check in today!

    The Turkey Trot was fabulous! Thank you to all of the volunteers, runners and four footed friends. The Ballard Food Bank is the receipient of all of the funds – volunteers and staff organize the event. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    Pardon my ignorance, but I’m not a runner. I can walk this event? And wear a really cool hat (and entire story should be dedicated to the hats). The course looks great! Next year, I’m there!

    What happy faces. And not only healthy, but well-read: as a fellow writer, I quote the author Sherman Alexie: ”…There’s something special too about being from the Pacific Northwest, which is by far the most literate region of the country and one of the most literate regions of the world. The Seattle to Portland corridor is powered by books…”

    Love the photos, though that turkey costume might give me the night terrors tonight…
