Way back in 1967, three brothers ran in their first organized race called, “The Turkey Trot.” Our father and mother, who raised all three of us in the United States Navy, had just moved to a community outside of Chicago. We had just left Catholic School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as our father had been transferred yet again. That is how Navy brats are made – we moved every two to three years and had to make our mark on a new community. Our mother wanted some peace and quiet when getting ready for our family Thanksgiving meal. Our mom, an avid reader, had heard about a race that we all could participate in and she asked our father to take us. She figured this would be a good way to get out of her hair while she cooked us all a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal.
