The energy and excitement at the Fort Lauderdale Turkey Trot and Paddle race is contagious. You’ll see multi-generational families, friends and coworker teams ready to compete. Everyone is laughing and ready to have a good time. Some will be dressed up in fun Thanksgiving costumes, think pumpkins, turkeys, and pilgrims. The best part of starting your Thanksgiving Day having such a good time, the feeling stays with you throughout the whole day. Plus, knowing that you’ve raced in the Fort Lauderdale 5th Annual Turkey Trot and Paddle reduces the guilt of eating that second piece of pumpkin pie.
If you’re not a regular 5K runner or 2M paddleboarder, there may be times during the race when your energy might wane or you become a little bored. Here’s a fun tip to help you get over your slump. Pick a person in a brightly colored outfit or costume and chase them. Once you catch up to them, pick a new ‘turkey’ to catch.
