Pine Knoll Shores Turkey Trot


If you are anything like me, you LOVE Thanksgiving Day and you also LOVE Thanksgiving Dinner.  I tend to overeat, especially in the dessert category, and then I overeat some more.  

Pine Knoll Shores Turkey TrotWhy not start your day with a walk or bike ride through the beautiful town of Pine Knoll Shores.  On Thanksgiving Day, show up at McNeil Park (off Oakleaf Drive) to register for the 3rd Annual Turkey Trot.  Registration begins at 9:00 a.m.  The bike ride and run begins at 9:30 a.m.  Don't let the word "run" scare you..... you can run, walk, stroll, crawl or however you want to cross the finish line.  I can't think of a better way to start Thanksgiving Day, than by burning a few calories, making room for the Thanksgiving Feast, and enjoying the beautiful community I am so thankful for.  

Dress warm, it will be chilly that morning by the water.  Volunteers will be serving hot cocoa and cider, and it is sure to be a fun event for the entire family!  Everyone is welcome to join in the Turkey Trot, including your four legged furry family members.... just make sure they are on a leash!

Hope to see you there!

Those that participate in the Turkey Trot will be ready for a big Thanksgiving dinner!

Have a most productive November.  Enjoy the colors of the season with your camera in hand.

Hi Amy,

We are one in the same when it comes to the Thanksgiving dinner and eating. I help prepare the dinner then I enjoy it more every year.

I hope there is a big turnout for the Turkey trot.

Have a great day in the Crystal Coast of North Carolina.

Best, Clint McKie

That sounds like a great time, particularly in a small town! I usually take a walk around the neighborhood after dinner (and before pie) so I don't pass out on the couch instead. :-D

This does sound like a fun time, Amy. I know I will be doing a 9 hole turkey scramble, weather permitting, to try to create the space for dinner

Sounds like great fun and a good way to burn off some of those Thanksgiving calories. I hope the weather cooperates and everyone has a fantastic time.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Amy,  I think most of us know by now that if we burn as many calories as we take in, we'll remain at the weight we are.  So, if we eat the "typical" Thanksgiving dinner, we will only have to exercise at optimum pace for 24/7 for about a week to balance it out.  LOL.  Seriously though, we can certainly enjoy all our favorite Thanksgiving treats without wrecking havoc with our weight if we'll eat with at least a little discretion and then get out there and MOVE!

Amy, ahhh Thanksgiving...a day of eating...more eating...maybe a walk around the block or participating in a local "Turkey Trot" and then more eating...I'll be burning off calories with my nephews and nieces this turkey day...they have way more energy than I do.
