My Family is Full of Turkeys
I really wanted to run in a a Turkey Trot this year however my hometown does not offer one and the closest one to me is about an hour away and has a $30 entry fee most importantly...I was not going to get a shirt out of it. So I had almost given up on the idea when I realized that my parents live on a very hilly but secluded 2.5 mile loop and I have a huge family. The combination of these two things has created the Frist Annual My Family is Full of Turkeys Fun Run. I am also mapping out a 1 mile route for the non-exercisers that still want to join in on the fun. Now, there is a possibility that every family member I just sent this email to just opened it, rolled their eyes and hit the delete button, but I think there is a good chance that I can at least get 4 other people out there with me. And the best part.....I am working on the design for the T-shirt right now and I am going to print it off on to transfer paper and then iron it on to shirts!
"I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a bike. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammeled womanhood." - Susan B. Anthony 1896
