Can’t stop the trot

Another Thanksgiving Day tradition — other than shopping, cooking and eating — emerges with the annual Encinitas Turkey Trot and Food Drive.

Gobblers, dressed in their best running gear or holiday-themed costumes, lined up early Thursday morning on the Coast Highway 101 for a 5K or 10K walk/run.
