TURKEY TROT: The fitness-oriented turned out Thursday morning for some exercise before the traditional excesses of Thanksgiving. Organized by Fitness Unlimited, Turkey Trot participants were asked to bring canned goods to be donated to Eagle’s Wings food pantry as the cost for the unofficial 5K. Runners and walkers started in front of the North Carolina Estuarium, traveled down East Main Street, through Washington Park to return to the starting point. The rain held out just long enough for all to work off a few pre-Thanksgiving calories.
