Chardon Turkey Trot 5K

Decided to stay close to my parents house for the turkey trot this year and went with the Chardon 5K approximately 15 minute from Gates Mills.  It was Scott's first time running since the marathon (yes, 6 weeks).... so we enjoyed our trotting pace and had a few laughs along the way.  

The race was definitely "small town" set up.  Easy parking, local vendors came out to support and the roads/path were completely clear due to it being Thanksgiving morning and the police monitoring the few traffic spots.  The course was nice with a small portion of out and back and loop around the town square in the beginning and end of the race.   Post race had donuts, oranges and other breakfast goodies.  Proceeds went to stop human trafficking and hopefully a fair amount went to cause since it wasn't the cheapest race.  

Turkey Troy streak lives on!
