Before I even ran in my second Turkey Trot, 70 lbs after my first Trot one calendar year ago, I had an idea. The morning before Thursday's race, I went back to the official photos from that first Turkey Trot. I hadn't looked at the photos for some time, and looking at them before the race, I was met with a huge shock.
I was so fat, I thought.
I have a hard time thinking that it was only a year ago that I looked like that. It seems like it was five (or a million) years ago.
I knew I wanted to do a side-by-side "Before and After" with this year's Turkey Trot photos, since I knew it was going to be a dramatic difference.
The photos from this year's Trot came out today.
I think they speak for themselves.
I can't wait for 2013's Turkey Trot.
