Turkey Trot – Thanksgiving Day Traditions
Most people know that I love to run and I run almost every morning. And either because of this or in spite of this, I have unknowingly created my own Thanksgiving tradition; my own personal Turkey Trot. For the last 10+ years I have ran every Thanksgiving Day morning. Whether I was pregnant, just had a baby, running a little, or running daily I have always ran on Thanksgiving.
As Thanksgiving was approaching this year, I realized that I had created my own tradition. It is a wonderful thing to take time to be purposefully thankful. And that is what my Turkey Trot is all about. I take time to thank God for all the wonderful blessings in my life and to allow myself to feel his presence. In a world with so much “stuff” it can be easy to forget what is truly important in life.
As you enjoy your Thanksgiving take a few minutes… or an hour to run, walk or sit outside and enjoy God’s Beauty and allow HIS peace to wash over you.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
