The only thing better than the feeling of sitting down with your family to enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal is knowing that you worked for this meal. And no matter how much you eat, you will have an accomplishment to think about at the end of the day (and no, I am not talking about finishing off all the turkey trimmings). Sign up for a Turkey Trot so you can enjoy your Thanksgiving feast.
Whether you choose to run a 5k, 8k, or 10k Turkey Trot, you will burn at least 200 calories more than you would have without running, and you will be thankful for one more thing at the end of the day: You won’t have to worry about loosening that belt one more notch.
There are turkey trots all over the country on Thanksgiving day, and they can be found by searching “turkey trot” and your city’s name in Google.
If you can’t get out of the house on Thanksgiving morning, or if you just want to prepare yourself for your hometown trot, Elon’s annual Turkey Trot is Nov. 18. The run begins at 3:30 p.m., and on-site registration starts at 3 p.m.
Have friends at Duke? Durham’s Turkey Trot is this Sunday.
