While Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to give thanks and gather with our friends and families, it’s also a time to eat a BIG meal. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed veggies… and don’t get us started on the pies! Most Thanksgiving dinner plates contain more calories and sodium than one human should consume in an entire day. So, it’s a great day to burn some extra calories before lifting your fork(s).
Here in the Vail Valley we have a few opportunities to do just that. With Turkey Trot races and fitness specials, get out there and get your sweat on before the big meal!
