Before (or after) you gobble down Thanksgiving dinner, consider trotting out for a run, walk, or stroll with your North Bay neighbors.
Many families are making turkey trots a healthy new addition to their feasting traditions. Indulging in some active, outdoor fun can help offset that extra 1,400-1,700 holiday calories we consume on average. Another appetizing reason to partake is that many turkey trots donate to local charities (and some offer prizes and volunteer opportunities).
