Hello Family and Friends!
First of all, I love Thanksgiving. I love the spirit of it. Time with family, delicious food, cooking together, expressing gratitude, and also, the turkey trot!
I had a feeling there weren't going to be many turkey trots happening in 2020, so 18 weeks ago I started training for, well, nothing. My idea was to go for my own make-believe turkey trot on Thanksgiving Day.
Then, I thought: maybe other people want to join me?
I have been reflecting on aspects of the turkey trot that I love: comradery, exercise, accomplishment, and giving to a good cause. Usually the cost of the race is $30-$40 and some of the money for your entry goes towards local food banks.
Anyway, long story short I HAVE CREATED MY VERY OWN VIRTUAL TURKEY TROT AND I WANT YOU TO JOIN ME! (if you want)
The "race" will be 100% virtual, hosted on strava! You can join my club here:
I have also registered this event with UNICEF and if you would like to make a donation, I encourage you to do so! I will be donating $35 which is about the cost of a regular turkey trot. You can "register" for my race and make a donation here:
If you're interested in participating:
