Virtual Turkey Trot

"Are you ready for tomorrow? What time should I wake you up?" inquired A.

"Do we have to?" asked P with a long sigh.

"Of course! We ought to keep the tradition alive. So what if we can't run the Turkey Trot with people. Let's do it by ourselves." 

"And just like all the times, I'll keep the pie, mashed potatoes, buttermilk biscuits, and lasagna ready." I chipped in with a broad smile to encourage my son. 

"Yum! So everything's the same as old times." He beamed with joy over it, "How does 7 am sound for our 10K?"

That's a fine tradition to continue. Some can be kept, with modifications.

A 10K sounds horrible to me, but I would help eating the food. lol Happy Holidays, Ruchira!

Making special foods an incentive seems to be what gets us trotting!

Sounds like a fun tradition until I'd get too old to run. LOL! Great fun! <3
