Before reaching for a slice of pumpkin pie, nearly 380 fitness fiends grabbed their running shoes Thursday morning for the Turkey Trot 5K race. The annual race celebrated its 27th year with music, a dancing turkey, food, prizes, and of course running. Despite the chilly weather and snow fall, the race saw even more participants than last year. "I feel like everyone was really pumped and excited and a little cold, but happy," Rachael Zimmerman, the fitness and health programmer at Teton County Parks and Recreation, said. "So I think the overall kind of feel was just, everyone was really happy to be here and enjoy each other and kind of do something fun together."
