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.
