Thanksgiving is just a week away and without a doubt I am already thinking about all the homemade food that I am going to eat. My family puts on a big feast! I eat and eat and eat some more. Then the food coma hits. The stretchy pants come out and I am not moving off the couch. A few years back I decided that was going to change. I was going to eat until I couldn't eat any more but that in order to make room for that I was going to run a 5K Thanksgiving Morning! GASP! That's where the Annual Turkey Trot comes into plan!  This year is the 10th Annual Pilgrim's Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot!

According to the official Facebook Page:

 

Don't just sit on the couch Thanksgiving morning! Join us for the 10th Annual Pilgrim's Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot and pre-burn those holiday calories while having fun for a good cause!  This holiday event supports the Nacogdoches Area United Way which engages and works to improve our community by supporting 20 community agencies in the areas of health, education, income and more.  The course will take you out the back of Pecan Park, past Memorial Hospital, through the Stephen F. Austin State University campus, into the Raguet neighborhood, then onto a trail that skirts the edge of the Tucker House woods, where it meets and then follows the Lanana Creek Trail back to the finish in Pecan Park. It will be a beautiful sightseeing run, or walk!

Now the official start time is is 8:30 with check in starting at 7:30 Thanksgiving morning!  The cost of the race is $35 but it does go to a great cause in the United Way!
