TDT: Thanksgiving Day Race

The Thanksgiving Day Race. Infinitely important tradition for countless reasons.  I say, “Countless,” but watch me try:

Getting ready for the race in 2010

Getting ready for the race in 2010

1)    Obvious: work off calories for all the goodies I’m about to eat tonight.

2)    Run into favorite people before the race: Coach V and family.

3)    Encounter some of the best of humanity: People standing along the course to cheer the runners on, dozens of Police officers and race volunteers putting together yet another well-run event, people peeling off clothes to donate to Goodwill, Men and women with their, “Running for…” shirts and, not forgetting, the young and the young at heart.

Ok, maybe it doesn’t seem countless, but I hit the big ones.  I’m thankful to have been a part of such a fun tradition for so long.
