Calling All Turkey Trotters!

Right before Halloween someone told me that this was the skinniest most Americans will be for the year, meaning that as we approach the holidays (and as the weather gets colder and we begin to hibernate) our diets and exercise routines start to go out the window!! Thus, the idea of the Thanksgiving turkey trot was genius–run a mere 3+ miles and eat to your heart’s delight later that day!

But more than feeling better about gorging on home-cooked food on Thanksgiving day, the turkey trot is an opportunity to spend time with loved ones and have some fun. This year I will be enjoying my first Thanksgiving race with my dad. I’m excited!

What about you? Will you be running, trotting or walking in a local Turkey Day race this year? I’d love to highlight as many of your stories in an upcoming blog post. So here’s what you can do–Take your camera or phone with you on race day. Snap your best photo and share 1-2 sentences with me on where you raced, who joined you, AND something you are grateful for! Extra credit for those dressed in costume. I look forward to hearing everyone’s stories.




About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
