On Thanksgiving 2010, we walked our 1st 5K with over 14,000 of our closest Tampa Bay friends. Our time was 59.54 at the St Petersburg Times Turkey Trot. Today, I go to Packet Pickup for our 4th Tampa Bay Times Turkey Trot marking our 3rd Anniversary Running! There are now over 20,000 doing this lil race! I've cut my 5K time by more than 50% and have done over 50 races since. This race is now a part of our Thanksgiving tradition!

Teach! You will never forget the sense of accomplishment when you complete your first race. It is truly exciting.
I am shock more SP have not responded to this new thread! As Runner's World has reported, "Thanksgiving Surpasses July 4 as No. 1 Day for Road Racing, New Year’s and Labor Day take third and fourth spots." Incredible that Thanksgiving is the #1 day for runners.
I am in! I am running a 10K Pumpkin Plod Thanksgiving morning. I guess they have to be different and call it something else. I am using it as an easy long run for me. As races go though, I may push it a bit. After this race, I am resting for 3 weeks before beginning my training in earnest for my first HM.
