Start a new (healthy!) family tradition and sign up for a Thanksgiving Turkey Trot!

I’m not a runner. I really don’t run. Ever. Unless I’m being chased, and thankfully, that’s not very often.

If you are a runner, or even more of a walker like me, many local communities are hosting holiday-themed races in and around Thanksgiving suitable for families and kids of all ages. Check one out and start a new Thanksgiving tradition with your family.
