    Dallas area - Anyone Signed Up for the Turkey Trot?

    Hubby and I are registered for the Turkey Trot. He's doing the 8 mile run, I'm doing the 3 mile fun run. Anyone else coming? Maybe we can do a Cyburbian group!

    Also, anyone signed up for the Help The Homeless walkathon and 5K run? I'll be doing the walkathon for that, as well.

    We (me, wife, inlaws) do it every year...typically the 3 mile (and sometimes I walk). I'd be down in meeting up with a group, but its always so crowded that I have a hard enough time finding my family!

    No, but I just signed up for the It's a Wonderful Run in Seneca Falls, NY - the REAL Bedford Falls.

    Good luck with the Turkey Trot!

    OK I spoke too soon. Hubby didn't register us, because he was waiting to see if he could get tickets for the Cowboy's T-day game. He did, so now we are not going to the Turkey Trot.

    So, have fun without us!

    I'll be at the Turkey Trot... in Detroit.

    Look for me - I'll be the guy running faster than everybody else!

    No costume for me, it will slow me down too much!

    I'll be Turkey Trotting in Miamisburg, Ohio. At the exceedingly inappropriate hour of 8 a.m.
