Have a Turkey Trot story to share? 


Thanksgiving in Dallas was spectacular this year as nearly 18,000 participants, accompanied by over 700 furry friends, gathered for the 56th Annual Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot presented by Texas Health.
I was in my twenties when the YMCA Turkey Trot started. I had been running 4 to 5 miles a day ever since Dr Cooper’s book came out about Aerobics. So I figured that the “Trot” would be something fun to do.
When it comes to Thanksgiving traditions, many of us think of family gatherings and feasting on delicious food.
