Turkey Day Tip #2: Turkey Trotting

Thanksgiving Day = a day of gluttony. It's a day completely centered around eating...eating lots of delicious food of course, BUT gluttony none the less. Something that my family has done the past few years which has become sort of a tradition for us is the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot. We have been gathering in Gilbert, AZ where my parents and sister live for the holiday. Mesa, the neighboring city has a Turkey trot they put on every Thanksgiving morning. There is a kids fun run, a 5K and a 10K. I LOVE this tradition because it starts your Thanksgiving Day off with some good old fashioned calorie burning. I looked into it and there are actually Turkey Trots all over. To find one in your area just go to Google and search your state. If there isn't one in your area make your own! We all know there are a few extra calories taken in a the Thanksgiving Feast, so it really is worth it to take the time to wake up and get in a good sweat in.
