Last week, on Thanksgiving, my husband and I ran the Inaugural Morgantown Running Turkey Trot. It was his first 5k, and I was bursting with pride and emotion. It's no secret that I love a good turkey trot, and I was thrilled for Morgantown's inaugural event.

The race started on the WVU track, and I have to say the start of the race was a total cluster. People were just milling about the track with no idea really where to go, and it was a disaster. Once things got going it ran more smoothly. The first mile was downhill which is a feat in a hilly city like Morgantown. After the first quick mile we were on the Morgantown River Trail for the rest of the race.
The race was downhill and flat, and it was an impressive course for a city renowned for its hilly terrain. It was a quiet and determined run in cold but sunny weather. My husband rocked it out in his first 5k. We finished on the River Trail right behind the Seneca Center where Morgantown Running is located.
