Run For Pie! {A Virtual Race!}

I said that I wasn’t going to do a Turkey Trot this year. And I’m still not going to. However with a whole morning off before Thanksgiving festivities begin I definitely plan on logging some miles to prepare myself for epic afternoon face-stuffage. It’s not often that I can actually sleep in a little bit and then go out for a run without feeling rushed.

Still I’m just a teensy bit sad about not racing. (I love racing in case you couldn’t tell by the 18 I’ve run this year.) So I thought…what if I did something like a little virtual turkey trot? There has to be more people out there that have nothing lined up for tomorrow, but planned on going for a run anyway.

So for all of you who are not signed up for a Thanksgiving race (or even those of you who are and feel like playing along) I present: RUN FOR PIE! 


Because pie is delicious and I assume many of us will be enjoying some after dinner tomorrow. Or even before dinner. It all goes to the same place right? No, I don’t mean my thighs.

Do you want to Run For Pie with me? Pick a distance…ANY distance. Even 3.14 miles (see what I did there)? Send me an email to by midnight EST tonight and I will send you your very own bib with a race number. After you finish your run, let me know how it went! There may be tens or thousands of miles between us, but we can still run together on Thanksgiving. I hope you guys will join me!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, and food! (PIE!)

    I’m totally in! I was on the fence about running a race and considered this 8k in my area. But it’s a huge USATF sponsored event and I didn’t feel like dealing with huge crowds for the holiday. This is a perfect idea! 😀

      Yay! That’s kind of how I was feeling about my local trot. It is going to be a mad house. I’d rather go run on my own and then come home and watch the Macy’s parade. 🙂

    I was supposed to do a turkey trot but didn’t because I’m nursing a pulled hip flexor. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
