There are days I wished I lived somewhere else, and today is definitely one of those days. I don’t know if it’s the holiday season, and people are just in the spirit of giving, but I’ve received the coolest offers lately — free workout classes, VIP access to store openings, free clothes, giveaway offers, and more. And they’ve ALL been in Dallas. (Insert pouty face here.)
One of the coolest things about Dallas? The Dallas YMCA Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot; and 2014 marks the 47th year of the race. Did you know it’s the largest Thanksgiving Day event, of its kind, in the world? Second only to the Macy’s Day Parade!
The Dallas Turkey Trot benefits several amazing causes — LIVESTRONG Cancer Recovery at the YMCA, diabetes prevention, and it even helps fund an Urban Swim program that teaches children life-saving water skills; just to name a few.
What better way to spend Thanksgiving morning? Benefitting others while burning off the Thanksgiving calories before they even start? Sounds pretty perfect to me. Can you imagine how uh-maaaaazing Thanksgiving lunch would taste after a 5k? Yea, my mouth is watering.
Registration for the race is simple, and even better — you have options. You can either do a 5k run/walk, or an 8mi. run. You can register for the 5k here, and register for the 8mi. here. Not into running or races? You can still be a part of the fun! Sign up to volunteer here.
And guess what, FiC followers? It’s the holiday season, and I’m in the spirit of giving. 🙂
