Arizona Road Racers Thanksgiving Day Classic
10 Miler, 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run
November 25, 2010
Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie, a glass of wine... all things most people associate with Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is a day to enjoy family, friends, and good food. Most of us watch what we eat through out the year but Thanksgiving gives us permission to forget about calories, indulge, and seems to kick off the eating season. With shopping, parties, and holiday food there is no end in sight of the calories and delights we get to indulge in.
So what better way to kick off the "silly season" then with a good old fashioned Turkey Trot? Many cities host them as a way to raise awareness and money for the local food pantry. Many people participate to help said food pantry and to offset the calories they will later consume. I thought this was a great idea and a way to challenge myself and kickoff my training for a half marathon only 9 weeks away.
