The last couple years, I've done my run before Thanksgiving so I can relax on Thanksgiving day. I did do a turkey trot in 2012 when I spent all of Thanksgiving week in Boston, and it was fun running around my old town of Wellesley, in an area I didn't really run in when I was growing up. My parents' house was on the other side of town, and the course took us around downtown Wellesley and thru a little bit of Wellesley College. If anyone's done the Boston Marathon, you've run parts of the turkey trot's course.
It was fun, but it's also been fun to do other races or runs before Thanksgiving. I still had one dish left to prepare this year, so by already having done my run, I could take my time, watch the Rockettes during the tape delay of the Thanksgiving Day parade, and finish making the food.
