Get those turkeys trotting! In anticipation of the big meal to follow later, Delon Nelson of D & I Fitness is hosting an informal Thursday morning run at Floods Hill. The Turkey Trot will take place on Thursday, Nov. 22, from approximately 7:30 a.m. until about 8:15.
Nelson explains, "D & I is a small fitness studio based in South Orange. Our members were interested in doing a run before classes on Thanksgiving morning." Nelson decided to "put it out there for anyone to take part in. So feel free to join us and run at your own leisure. My objective is to get folks moving before we start eating."
The run itself will be between three and four miles, a "do what you can type of thing," says Nelson. "If a fun time is had by all, we'll really organize a big one next year!!"
