OTT in quotes

After a great summer of surfing in Oceanside, I was diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma cancer in the fall of 2008. As a result I became a right leg amputee. I entered the 2010 Turkey Trot to prove to myself that great things are possible regardless of life's challenges. Basically that I could still do the fun events I did before cancer. I have done two Turkey Trots and one Oceanside Pier swim since then. Again this year my family and friends will be Trotting with me. What a terrific way to start Thanksgiving Day! - John

This is my second time running this race. My former neighbors and friends, the Holbert's, got me started on it. My dad is traveling from Chicago to run again this year too. I would watch out for him if you are in the 70 plus age group. - Robin

My favorite memory of the OTT is from 2010. My 80 year old father walked his first and last 5K, finishing last, assisted by my daughter who was about to have her spine fused with 2 two ft. rods and not be able to run for a year. - Luke

Favorite memory - 1st time participated with my sister and her family running in the rain! I walked; this year after losing 30lbs, I'll be jogging...rain or shine!! - Tammy

The Pacific Marine Credit Union O'side Turkey Trot has enjoyed quite a run as it prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary on Nov. 26. The running turkey logo first debuted in 2006. Since then, the race has become a holiday tradition in North County, with 10,000 running and walking in 2014. All that has helped raise more than $210,000 for local schools and non-profit organizations over the years. Be a part of the fun this Thanksgiving!

Enjoy great,
