Last year was the first time I had ever run in a race. My husband, in-laws and numerous friends joined in on the fun. We ran the morning of Thanksgiving in the Turkey Trek! The run took place in Downtown Albuquerque and was a flat, fast paced (but not for me) easy run.
The race was perfect for me because I HATE running and it was a short 5K run. Don’t laugh, but my goal was to make it in 45 minutes. I met my goal on my first race despite loathing running. I also thought it would be a great way to enjoy a semi-guilt free Thanksgiving feast. Everyone finished before me, but cheered me on as I reached the finish line. My son also ran in his first 1K race. He loved
it! This is perfect for the entire family – you can walk, run and bring your jogging stroller! So, if you need some advice on how to cut your calories on Thanksgiving, all I can say are two words…. Turkey Trek!
