We party & give thanks

I had planned a group run with a bunch of friends this morning.  We were to meet at Little Cottonwood Canyon creek trail at 7:30a.  Then, at the last minute I got a wild hair up my ass and decided to run to the trailhead.  I didn't sleep much last night.  For some reason, after child number three woke me at 2:45am I couldn't go back to sleep.  So, what did I do?  I cut out and sewed a turkey tail feather to go on my pack.  

I headed out at 6:20a.  It was cold, but not as cold as yesterday.  I thoroughly enjoyed this solo run, as I haven't had many of those lately.  There is something about starting a run in the dark and watching the sun come up that just makes everything right in my world.  

I got to the trailhead at exactly 7:30a and waited for everyone to arrive.  Katherine and Michelle were also turkey themed, although Michelle wins the prize for best turkey!  It was a fantastic run.  I love this little trek.  It's hard on the way up, but I can fly like the wind on the way down!  

What a perfect way to start Thanksgiving day!  I sure am grateful for all my awesome runner friends!

Good morning sun!

Dawn is my favorite time of day.  It is also my youngest daughter's and my mother's middle name. 
What a bunch of turkeys!

The turn around point.  Nice tail, Michelle.  I'm actually really impressed she ran in that thing!
We were accosted by another group of runners at the end of our run.  They loved that we were dressed for the occasion and asked to get a picture with us!  So, naturally, I asked them to take a picture of our group.  Pretty nice looking group!  From left to right: Michelle, Me, Zach, Dona, Katherine
