At the start line, both of the boys took off. I couldn't stay with them at the start, but usually Nic fades back to me after the first quarter mile or so. Not on Thanksgiving!

While we are talking about being super proud, Nic was the second grade boy winner for his elementary school 1/2 mile Turkey Trot!!! He ran a great race and paced right off of the lead boy until he ran him down at the end. Zach ended up 3rd for the 4th grade boys for his mile race. He tried to pace himself a little too much and couldn't catch the leader at the end. Too bad it wasn't a longer race, or he would have had them because they were fading.
