The Turkey Drowned


Six regulars convened in the light rain with 1 should-have-been-pax-pucker sighting on the last leg of the run.  Weather was cool and slightly damp.


The goal today was most of the turkey trot route with only minor modifications due to time.  The end result was a few larger adjustments due to the dogs and cats falling from the sky.  If there was a turkey anywhere around it would have drowned.  Run up by the football stadium, up campus rd, down toano, up roselawn, down ridgeway, through the construction, back by the commons, around the lake, up the wooden steps, up to college drive, down college to the lake, up lakewood, up westham, down glen pkwy, through campus and back to the flag.


We ran, in the rain, and it was heavy.  One pax couldn’t see and decided to just do laps around the lake.  Likely a good decision as there were a few touch and go moments on College Drive.  Rather somber moment at mile 4.5 when the PAX passed a makeshift memorial on Westham that was created for the weekend passing of a Freeman high school student.  Thoughts and prayers for the family and friends.

Nice run y’all.



  1. It couldn’t have been that bad as there was only a 10% chance of rain. Maybe they meant 10% chance that we needed to build an ark. Thanks for leading today.
