Jan dressed as a TurkeyThe Hannaford Turkey Trot 5k was this morning in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. It was a beautiful day to run, and I wish that I had been. I got to help the kids get through their fun run at 8:30, though, and then got to take chips off of people’s ankles behind the finish line. It was a lot of fun.

The weather was ideal for a late November race in Maine. Clear skies, a light breeze, and temperatures around 40 degrees. There were 589 finishers.

John Wilson7 of the top 10 finishers, and the first 4 to cross the line, were in their late teens or early 20s.

John Wilson won the race handily by over half a minute in 15:43. Carry Buterbaugh led the women through the finish line by almost a minute.
