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.
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.
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!
