I'm in for the Alexandria Turkey Trot - starting at GW Middle school this year for a 5 mile tour around Alexandria! Fun fun fun.

Alexandria Turkey Trot as well. I'll probably be wearing orange.

Alejandro, wearing orange, who'da thunk it?...Likely Alexandria for me too.

Alexandria for me, too. Probably very slowly, owing to post-marathon recovery (how long can I use that excuse, by the way?).

x3 for the Alexandria TT. Not sure what I have left in my legs are a marathon and half marathon in the last few weeks.

Gonzaga Thanksgiving Race
POSTED: 11/21/11 2:02 PM

I've supported the Gonzaga Thanksgiving race for years -- it is a fundraiser for the work they do with addicts, homeless, and mentally ill folks in the District.

Unfortunately, the U.S. Park service pulled their permit last year and I have to say I really like the response from the race -- "we're gonna run anyway."

Check out the email I got below. Rise up against the park service and "Occupy Belle Haven Park."

================

Please join us for another impromptu run/walk on Thanksgiving Day!

The Gonzaga Thanksgiving Day Classic 10k Run/5k Walk was a great event. Unfortunately the United States Park Service will no longer allow the run to be “officially” conducted. Last year the families and the young men who originally started the event in 2006 along with 50+ people showed up to take a walk or run and make a donation to the Fr. McKenna Center. We would love to make that number 100 this year!

Gonzaga College High School’s mission is one of educating “Men for Others”. Please join us as we “walk or run as one” to benefit the Fr. McKenna Center at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Church on Eye Street in Washington, D.C. “A place in Washington, D.C., that the homeless call home.”

Details:
Location – Belle Haven Park – just north of Belle Haven Marina – Directions below
Walk 5K
Run 10K
Start Time 8:30am
Donations accepted – Please make checks out to Father McKenna Center

Park Service has been cutting down alot on races originating out of Bell Haven - I don't get it. Sounds like a great race. Wish I could join you.

I'll be at the So Others Might Eat Turkey Trot 5K with a big contingent from Back On My Feet. This is the biggest turkey trot in the area... they're expecting 6,000 this year! Race starts at 9am at Freedom Plaza in DC (new location... no longer at Hains Point!) If you're interested, registration closes today!
