Did you know the biggest running day of the year is Thanksgiving? I didn’t either (thanks Google!) It’s true, Turkey Trots are breaking records every year with the number of people willing to sweat it out before the feast. These races don’t just benefit our hearts and health though- the money raised (especially from registration fees) go to help everything from park beautification, to homeless services, to athletes with disabilities. We love running Turkey Trots as a family tradition! We feel great about our bodies, and the fact that we may have helped somebody else out. Have you ever run a Turkey Trot? How do you give back on Thanksgiving?

Happy Thanksgiving! Did you know Kerryluvcat participates in at least one charity a month?
This month, I’m donating to a group collecting canned goods to feed the homeless. Also donating to another group collecting toiletries and toys for hospitalized children. And for those that follow my Facebook, I’m still knitting squares to make blankets to send to Africa for orphans affected by HIV.
There is so much good we can do… just by cleaning out our “stuff.” There’s an abundance problem America. What an opportunity! I encourage everyone to use this break as a time to clean out a closet, pantry, or garage. Thanksgiving is the perfect time!
