Ok, so I didn’t actually RUN this Thanksgiving. I mainly have been writing a 10 page paper for class. And once this is done I have another paper to write. But I’m taking a little break here to wish everyone else a Happy Rungiving (aka Happy Thanksgiving!) and Happy Turkey Trot race!
I envy all of you who did Turkey Trots today. I really want to do one some day. My friend and I were talking about how Turkey Trots should be a mandatory 10k distance. That’s bare minimum for burning off Thanksgiving calories! We’re really big talkers for two people who did NOT do Turkey Trots today. And anyway, if you want to get technical, I’d have to run an ultra to burn off the calories I eat for Thanksgiving. Still, at least a 10k is taking the edge off, right?
I seem to never run on Thanksgiving for some reason. I run the day before and the day after but never the day of. It always seems that the actual day is just too busy for a run. I’m hoping that the combination of finishing grad school and my kids getting older will help me get to these races in the future. I can’t wait! I hear some of them give you pumpkin pie at the finish!
Well I hope you and your loved ones are having a great day today! I hope all you runners are able to get a run in this weekend too! To those of you who can’t be with loved ones, I’m hoping you are having as good a day as possible. I read an expression that said “If you want to feel rich, just count all the gifts you have that money can’t buy.” We can all count something! And those things are what make us truly thankful.
Have you ever run a Turkey Trot? Which one? Did any of you take your whole family out?
