Thanksgiving is a time for bringing family and friends together, sharing in what we are thankful for. This will be my first time in 15 years I will not be in Colorado to run with friends and my peers. Luckily Thankgiving Day races can be enjoyed in almost every community. I have found a 4 mile race in my hometown in which I hope to build on that tradition and make a few more friends.
One thing is for sure, I am thankful I am able to be running.
The season kicks off this weekend with two of the area’s highly competitive races. But, you don’t have to be competitive to join in the fun. Turkey Trot races are a great way to kick off a healthy start to the holiday season. Don’t be surprised to see a few costumed runners out there and most races have a kid’s or shorter race with them.
