Turkey Trot Season is Back

Despite the warmer-than-usual weather, cross-country season’s grand finale upon us, and Halloween candy-as-fuel still a recent memory, it is time to look toward the holidays and that can only mean one thing: turkey trot season.

Is it because we feel a little guilty for gorging ourselves …continue…

Turkey Trot Season: By the Numbers

Each year on Thanksgiving, we look forward to eating a delicious feast with family and friends. But as runners, this only comes after we test our limits at a local road race. It’s usually pretty easy given the abundance of races and the fun atmosphere at these events. There’s just something a little bit more satisfying about that Thanksgiving meal if you have a sense of accomplishment under your belt. …continue…

Turket Trot Season Approaches

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is fast approaching, the days are getting shorter, and the weather seems to get more frigid by the day. While it’s always tough to see the warm weather fade away, we’re not too upset for one simple reason: It’s turkey trot season. For whatever reason, running road races on or around Thanksgiving has become as commonplace as eating turkey. Is it because we feel …continue…

Team Run in top spots at 2nd Annual Nagog Seasons Half Marathon & 5k

Sanca Resets Course Record, Omae Runner-Up in Lowell

Last night in Lowell Ruben Sanca proved that the third time was indeed the charm as the Mill City-based runner finally broke the Good Times #9 5K course record.

(Mere weeks after the Red Sox traded Nomar Garciaparra to the Chicago Cubs, for …continue…
