All of us (except for Kyle who was in London) ran the Volvo 5k Turkey Trot. Our times were:
Parker - 19:27
Brenden - 19:28
Judy - 26:27

We spent the afternoon at our friends the Keatings and made it home in time to watch the Patriots beat the Jets, 49 to 19.  And then Tom stopped by to have some Turkey with us.
