That's a bunch of trotting and hoping that it provides not only exercise but the fund raising that goes along with it.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson ~ hi Sally... I never knew about Turkey Trots until I moved to Charlotte. All we had in NYC was the Macy's Day parade. But they are really popular here and I'm glad they often associate themselves with a worthy cause.

Dorie Dillard ~ good morning, Dorie... when I look at the visits to this post in past years, it's always a large number. And 10,000+ runners in a city the size of Charlotte just in one trot is amazing.

Hey Nina Hollander,  Great picture of that running turkey.  Hope you are having a great week.  We are up outside of Steamboat and I am working on my 2017 budget, should I include Tom Ferry Summit?
