The starting line was in walking distance of our hotel so I walked over with another family who were running. There were surprisingly several people in the hotel lobby in the morning who were headed over to run the race. Several of my uncles, aunts, and cousins were also staying at the hotel for a couple nights so they all walked over to cheer me on. Thanks!
There's always a fun crew out to run on Thanksgiving morning- fun turkey costumes and such. This year my favorites were the OKC firemen cadets. There were probably about 25 of them who ran in full-gear in formation the whole race! I wish I had gotten a picture.
I was very excited to wear the turkey hat again this year! I was able to wear it almost all the way through the race.

Phoebe came out to cheer me on in her turkey dress that Mamo had made for her
The whole Leck clan (about 24 of us) met at another hotel downtown for Thanksgiving dinner; this place was packed with a line out the door! Who knew so many people headed to one buffet for Thanksgiving dinner!

Some cousin love. Or maybe 2nd or 3rd cousin love....Or maybe 2nd cousin once removed?? I have no idea how those things work. Benjamin is my cousins, Kenneth and Sara's, 4th baby boy who is about 6 weeks older than Phoebe.
