Last year Henri and I went home for Thanksgiving and got to run everyone – it was such a blast!
A few years ago my youngest sister and I decided to make the fam matching shirts for the race. We wen to Micheal’s, bought brown shirts and puff paint, and drew giant cartoon turkeys on the front of the shirts!
After that my mom got all professional about it and now we get customized t-shirts made! I’d loved these ones last year – huffin’ for stuffin’!! (Stuffing is one of my favorites after all!)
This year we will be sticking around Cali for Thanksgiving. But we found a Turkey Trot near us that we are going to run with my aunt uncle, and cousins! My older sister and her husband will be visiting his family in Chicago – so there we’ll have 20 people running in three different races across the country this Thanksgiving!
My mom is so sweet, and even though we won’t be home she wanted to make sure we don’t miss out on the Thanksgiving t-shirt fun! This morning I received these in the mail!! (I am in love with the turkey’s little Pilgrim hat!)
This year we even got names on the back – mine points to my favorite thing about the Thanksgiving meal!
I cannot wait to wear these on Thanksgiving morning! It will shrink the distance between me and my family, if only in spirit, and make our race even more special!
I will miss getting to see this in person though! How cute is my mom??
Does your family run a Turkey Trot together?
Do you like to wear matching outfits for races?
I think it makes it really fun, and everyone else can tell who you are with!
