With Erik off in Moldova, and Lea's parents agreeing to host Thanksgiving, a quiet day was planned. However, Carter agreed that it would be fun to run his first 5K on Thanksgiving. And run, he did! Lea ran with him, and thought he would have to walk a great deal of it. But he ran and ran, only walking at the water stop. It was more of an ice stop in the 17 degree weather, and perhaps the temperature contributed to his motivation to run. Carter and his grandpa both ran their first races that day, and both made the top 10 in their age categories!
