Gardendale's Inaugural Turkey Trot

On a crisp Thanksgiving morning in Gardendale, Alabama, a group of thirty runners congregated in the Gardendale Civic Center parking lot to partake in the inaugural Gardendale Turkey Trot. With no t-shirts or medals, no bibs or cheering masses, these runners met merely for the fellowship and the love of their sport. The effort was coordinated by Gardendale's David Crockett, who also got Donut Joe's to provide some post-run treats, that almost certainly replaced all the calories we had just burned.

Perhaps this Turkey Trot will grow in future years to include many of the runners in Gardendale and Fultondale. Or maybe it will remain a smallish group. Regardless, all of the runners expressed their interest in it becoming a regular part of their Thanksgiving traditions.
