Whitefish Turkey Trot | Thanksgiving 2019

I have challenged the students to enter the Whitefish Turkey Trot with me on Thursday, November 27, 2019.

Well, I registered today November 17th. Just 10 days away. I think it will be the perfect day and I like that the money goes to the food bank! We’ve been working on our intervals, but it will still probably take me 45 minutes to cross the finish line. IDK well see. But what’s better then a bit of fresh air and a fundraiser on Thanksgiving?!

We have 18 school days till Thanksgiving. We will be running intervals: 20 second run, 20 second walk in the 5k. At least that’s what I will be doing. And it will probably take me close to 45 minutes to complete 3.1 miles.

Run-Walk-Run is the Jeff Galloway method and is good on your knees. We would love to have you join us.

The Whitefish Turkey Trot only costs $12 to register and is a benefit for the Food Bank. They ask participants to:

Please bring non-perishable food to the start of the race and help us donate more than the 900 pounds of food we gave to North Valley Food Bank in 2018. In particular, the food bank needs: Canned fruit, canned soup, frozen veggies and spices.

They keep the race low-key with no shirts or swag, but we’re hope to donate more than the $2000.00 we gave to North Valley Food Bank last year. Come support the community while helping your own body before we go home and eat far too much food.

Whitefish Turkey Trot ~ November 26, 2015 ~ 2º

You can see the course map on their website. FYI the year I ran is was 2º. It was cold and icy. If there is snow or ice, I will not participate but if the weather cooperates I will be there!

I grew up on Long Island about 20 miles from NYC. When I was in 4th grade I read Sasha, My Friend by Barbara Corcoran which is a story about a little girl who moves to her dad’s Christmas tree farm in northwest Montana. From that day on I was determined to move there and when I was 21 I entered the University of Montana in Missoula. During my junior year I met my husband on a mountainside and we have been happily married for over 25 years now! I have had such an exciting life, traveling all around the United States, mostly in the Northwest corner and back and forth between Montana and NYC. When I am not in the classroom, I spend most of my time in Montana’s National Forests, collecting firewood, picking wildflowers, gathering mushrooms, searching for antlers, or just sighting a majestic mountain view! I love to hike with my friends and family and paint the things that I see and find, creating stories to share!
