Sharing Gratitude

Where does the time go!

With just over two weeks until the holiday, here are three Thanksgiving Day morning running options for you, one in each state.

The Ferncliff Forest 5K Turkey Trot in Rhinebeck, NY, helps pay for the upkeep and programs at Ferncliff Forest- race time is 8 am.

The Goshen Turkey Trot in Goshen, CT is a 10K race which benefits a variety of community charities- race time is 9 am. Donuts and cider afterwards but save room for later.

And the Thankful 5K , organized by the Berkshire Running Center runs in downtown Pittsfield, MA. Proceeds from this race benefit Autism Connections- race time is 8 am. All three events will kick off early enough to get you home in plenty of time to restore those depleted calories. Get all the details for these and other events here at

William Arthur Ward said that “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a gift and not sharing it.” I hope that this Thanksgiving, and throughout the year, you take the time to share your gratitude with those who deserve it.

Happy Thanksgiving
