One of the most treasured Thanksgiving traditions has become the Turkey Trot.  An annual tradition of a run on the the morning the holiday.  Families, friends and strangers from all walks of life gather to test their limits.  Unfortunately, many of the participants are out of shape or inexperienced with a run like this.  

There are some simple step you can take to get yourself ready and prepared.  Achilles tendons stretches in the week prior and day of are crucial.  A thorough stretch can help with cramping, tightness and pain.  
Be sure to have a well fitting shoe that you have run in before.  Brooks the sneaker brand even has a new Turkey Trot shoe for sale!
If you don't wear a custom orthotic, consider one prior to the race.  This can limit pain, disperse pressure and give your feet the support you need. 
Drink plenty of water leading up to the race and the day of.  Lastly be sure to do a light rundown to allow your muscles to relax.  Then a final stretch.  
Have fun!
