I don’t know about you but I’m not in the mood to read any more articles about how many calories are in my favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Instead of stressing over whether or not I should enjoy stuffing or pumpkin pie I’d rather just get my body moving on Thursday morning to help keep things in balance. You probably have heard by now about the Drumstick Dash happening out at State Fairgrounds (P.S. You need to register by the end of today to get in!), However there are some other events going on as well that morning. Coach Amy Friese is giving a FREE Thanksgiving workout at Fitness for Everybody in Bay View bright and early Thanksgiving morning at 7AM. And just up the road at Wild Workouts & Wellness, Amber is hosting her own Turkey Trot at 9AM. There’s a 2 mile walk, 5K run/walk and an 8K run. All you have to do to to attend either of these events is bring a non-perishable food item to donate and you can get your sweat on before gobbling up some turkey!
On a side note: The FitMKE blog will be taking a break over the next few weeks from now until the end of the year and may only be posting intermittently. I would really love to expand the number of voices who contribute to this site so if you’re interested in sharing your ideas for blog topics and articles, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heard of any other Thanksgiving Day workouts going on in town? Are you planning on burning some calories Thursday AM?
