I started off the holiday by waking up really early. Why you might ask? Well let me tell you. My friend Alicia and I decided that we would participate in the Run to Feed the Hungry event this year. It is a 5k or 10k run held on Thanksgiving morning. All proceeds go to the Sacramento Food Bank to help those who are in need. I drove to the venue and quickly found my school team from Drexel University. We took a team photo, which I hope to post in the future once we get it. The President of the Graduate Student Association came in the school mascot outfit which was way fun.
This was my first official race and I was so excited even though I new I'd walk since I failed to train. It was so fun to see all the people and how excited everyone was. The news reports stated that there were 28,000 participants this year, more than last year.
