Four Miles on Thanksgiving by Abbie Roads

Four Miles on Thanksgiving

It's almost Thanksgiving! Woohoo! 

Bright and early every Thanksgiving, my husband and I throw on our warmest workout wear, then drive an hour to The Flying Feather Four Miler! 

It's a tradition we started nearly ten years ago and one we look forward to every year. Some years the weather is mild. Some years it rains. And one year it was

so cold and snowy during the race that my clothes were actually frozen from my own sweat by the time I finished! It took all day to get warm again!

Part of our tradition is to stop by Starbucks to get coffee and snacks and pick up a newspaper with all the day-after-Thanksgiving sales before driving home.

There's something very satisfying about doing this run every year. But maybe it's just a way to not feel guilty about all the overeating that will be occurring... lol. 

How about you? Do you have any fun Thanksgiving traditions?
