TIME TO TURKEY TROT!
Each year as the sunlight wanes and the leafs fall in late November, people from all over the United States take a day off to celebrate the heritage of a nation – Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving is a day of watching football games, over-eating big meals and tolerating distant relatives. Not everyone wants to sit around the table eating tofurkey and getting fattened for the “kill”, so an alternative event has sprung out of the need for healthier living.
I’m talking…Turkey Trots!
Here is a list of my favorite trots….now, go get your run on!
