The Unruffling of Feathers

Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the fall.  I participated in the annual Turkey Run (f/k/a the Turkey Trot) in Manasquan.  It was quite warm at 11:00 when we toed the starting line on First Avenue.  It felt just as warm slightly more than forty minutes later (40:19 to be exact) when I crossed the finish line five miles later.  

Predictably, November returned to New Jersey this morning.  But, again this year as it has done for each of the past seven years, the weather on race day was incredible.  Under sun-drenched skies and through streets lined with enthusiastic well-wishers, several hundred runners sped our way through the streets of Manasquan. It was - as it always is - a nice way to accelerate the countdown to Thanksgiving.  A gateway to the holiday season if you will.

And a damn nice one too.
