Turkey Stuff Walk
November 23, 2006
Several people called interested in an Obsidian turkey stuffer walk.
None wanted to go to Lively Pool in Springfield for the annual
Thanksgiving Day “Turkey Stuffer” 5K run/walk. By 8:00 a.m., the
parking lot was overflowing but somehow I managed to find a place to
park close to the pool. Around 1000 people started out at 8:30 a.m. on
the walk/run through the neighborhood. When I slowly walked over the
finish line, I heard the announcer say, “There goes 65 year old Ms.
Janet Jacobsen over the finish line.” There were a few claps! Many
participants and family members including me took advantage of the free
swimming. It was a festive community event. There were even a few
runners in turkey costumes.
