And when I say "Sometimes you have to run" I mean, sometimes you have to dress up in a tu-tu and trot slowly around downtown Minneapolis on Thanksgiving morning.
Which is what I did:
But let's stop talking about that and let's start talking about my tu-tu. The tu-tu's were Brooke's idea, well she texted me and said she was going to make a turkey tu-tu for the run and I texted back "I already have one." Because I do, during my time as a burlesque performer, I do a number involving a brownish colorful tu-tu and ta-da, the perfect tu-tu for the Turkey Trot.

I very much enjoyed seeing all the dogs that had signed up for the 5K and I liked it even more when the dogs were in costume. One family had a great look going where to two adults were dressed as pilgrims and there dog was the turkey! Well done!
At the end of the race is almost a party; hot coca, fruit, yogurt, candy, free stuff from various vendors and the general feeling of looking forward to the Thanksgiving meal and knowing that you already burned a lot of calories today and you really can be a couch potato all day and feel accomplished because you did the Turkey Trot.
This was my first year taking part in this event, I do want to do it again, however, this is Minnesota. Yesterday was and awesome 60 degrees for trotting, some Thankgivings are less that than in temperature-wise, but it is only 5K and it is super fun.
So, we'll see if I am up for it next year. It will depend on the weather, not my ability to make a tu-tu that simulates feathers.
