Race Report: 2011 Turkey Rock Trot

We kept the tradition alive for another year, participating in the Turkey Trot 5k in Castle Rock for the 4th time in a row.

The kids and the crowds were all a bit bigger than they were previously.

The Rock Trot makes for a fun outing and we are happy to help support the Douglas County Food Bank.

The girls were cute as always.

Jessica was in charge of our turkey mascot.

I’m not quite sure what look Malcolm was going for.

We huffed and puffed up some hills, and got our appetites all warmed up for later.

Katie put on the brakes thinking it was time to stop when we passed the kids waiting for us before the finish.  She was promptly directed to continue…

We did it!  Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

  1. I seriously contemplated driving down for that race, but just a bit far. Maybe some year. I like the idea of a lower-key event and the possibility of placing higher and getting passed by fewer 10-year-olds :\

    Have a great holiday 🙂

    • It is a good race, but the course is not the greatest (mostly sidewalk along bigger roads). Nice shirts, good cause, and the kids enjoy it. That’s reason enough for us. No guarantees on not getting passed by 10-year olds, though!

  2. Glad you represent us so well. Proud of you all.
