Adding to Tradition

TTrotBlogAh, November. For runners, that means two things: the colder, winter, weather has finally set in, and the abundance of those time honored Turkey Trots! While the colder weather might not be something to look forward to, Turkey Trots are an awesome excuse to get out around the holidays and have a good time.

If you look around, Turkey Trots are everywhere. Peppered through out the month of November a good number of them are on Thanksgiving morning, but there are still some on the weekends before and after. Most are fairly low key, family friendly events. (And some are even canine friendly!)

We all have some sort of Thanksgiving tradition, be it a football game in the backyard or on the television, dinner at the grandparents, pumpkin pie, goose, or some other random event. This year, think about adding to the season’s festivities. Take a look at the calender and get your family and friends involved.
