10 Reasons to Trot
The 5th Annual 5K Turkey Trot is coming up November 28, 2013
and here are the top 10 reasons why you shouldn’t miss it!
1. SUPPORTS A GOOD CAUSE
Your entry fee helps provide Thanksgiving Day meals for families in need in Palm Beach County.
2. IT’S FUN
Bring the kids, grandma, your great aunt Trudy — all ages are encouraged to trot.
3. START YOUR DAY WITH EXERCISE
It’s a great workout. Running can burn over 1,000 calories per hour. Talk about a great way to burn off all of those mashed potatoes!
4. RELIEVE SOME HOLIDAY STRESS
Running has psychological benefits. The endorphins released while running help people feel less fatigued, depressed and tense throughout the day.
5. YOU GET A T-SHIRT
You can show off your awesome race day t-shirt.
6. KICK SOME BUTT
A little friendly competition never hurt anyone!
7. ONE OF A KIND
It’s the only race on the Island of Palm Beach.
8. JUMP START YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION
Why wait more than a month to start your “get healthier” resolution.
9. YOU’LL FEEL EMPOWERED
Running a 5k is the first step in showing that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.
10. START A NEW TRADITION
Can you think of a better way to spend Thanksgiving morning then running, walking, or trotting through Palm Beach? Neither can we. And it gives you an excuse to eat that extra slice of pumpkin pie!
