For most of us, after October all the serious running is behind us until sometime in March. We stay consistent and get out the door but don't follow a hard schedule. Time to lick the wounds and let the body rest up! The fun holiday and winter races will help keep us in the game and give us a reason to get in the daily run so they will be... FUN races! That said, more people will lace up their shoes on Thanksgiving day than any other day of the year! The Turkey Trot rules the event world, one of running's greatest traditions. If you have not started this tradition with your friends and family, it's time to be the catalyst and get it started! A turkey Trot finish will earn you an extra helping at the table and a spot on the couch!
Give thanks to the Trot,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who invites you to join me and 4,000 of my closest friends at the Downtown Ann Arbor Turkey Trot 5K and 1K on Thanksgiving morning!
PS: HO, HO, GO! Speaking of holiday fun... Naughty or nice, walker or runner, come breathe in the December night air, burn a few holiday calories and give back to others! The Holiday Hustle on December 8, 2018 is a festive dash around Dexter that will get you in the holiday spirit. Knit beanies to all entrants and medals to all finishers. REGISTER NOW!
As runners, we are not armchair quarterbacks wearing a jersey with someone else's name on it, we are the players! An athlete is someone who trains and gathers knowledge to be better at their sport. You are an athlete! When you line up to race, the spectators, the people on the sidelines, are cheering for YOU! You are out there setting the example, inspiring others and working to be a better you. A personal best at 5K is a heck of a lot more meaningful to us than the weekend stats of some quarterback throwing 200 yards. You are the real deal! Now get out there and train.
Can I get your autograph?
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who thinks you should be wearing a jersey with your own name on the back!
PS: GOBBLE GOBBLE, ATHLETES! The temps have dropped and the holidays are right around the corner. Join us on Thanksgiving morning for a 5K or 1K trot around downtown Ann Arbor at the Turkey Trot!
