Turkey Trot 2021

For several months now I've been doing my best to watch my calories and work out. Turns out, two main keys to maintaining a healthy weight and feeling good, are increasing your daily activity and eating healthy.

Who would have thought, right?

When I started this quest for living a healthier lifestyle, it was summertime. We are now approaching the holidays and as a trainer once said, " If you fail to plan likely it will be a plan to fail." I need a plan for holiday eating.

I know I am not alone in not wanting to lose my momentum even during the holidays.

Because let me be honest, a day of "taking a break" always leads to me dropping the ball entirely.

Thanks to the Victoria Area Road Runners Association, you can have your turkey AND eat it too.

The Victoria Area Road Runners Association is a running club open to runners of all levels in Victoria who typically run on Monday night, Wednesday night, and Saturday morning at Riverside Park.

Continuing the tradition started by Cryo Depot, the Crossroads is welcome to join the VARRA Thanksgiving morning for their Turkey Trot 5K at 7:30 am at Patriot Park.

You can register for $35.00 at runsignup.com

Karen Aronson Animals are smarter than most humans... · Reply · · 9m Brandee Bratton tc221l08h8on03hri · I have a number of people to thank for making last nights Raven’s Garden Night Market the huge success that it was and I’ll be handing those out for many weeks & months to come but right now I have to single out this most amazing man right here, the ringmaster of all ringmasters. He has worked so incredibly hard to make my dreams come true. My desire to put together a night market that included craft beers, an acoustic sound, and authentic vendors selling crystals, potions, candles, incense, and all those witchy tools that bring good energy was something he supported me with. For the past 4 months weekend after weekend he has diligently worked himself to the ground making sure Raven’s Garden was perfect and it was. Everything about the night was perfect. It all magically came together exactly like I dreamed and I couldn’t be more grateful. My heart is so full and this man has so much to do with it!! Thank you Joe Bratton for your unwavering love and for believing in me!!! 12 Comments Christy Thurmond Pall This is awesome!

They need help promoting their Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day. Can you help? Ofelia Ofelia Marie Elizondo You sent YES! My cell is 361.649.1825 can you call me at 9:30 please? Ofelia Ofelia Marie Elizondo Yes ma’am! Write to Ofelia Marie Elizondo

Ofelia Elizondo who has been running 5Ks for over ten years in Victoria, who recently ran Mt. Rushmore, and who happens to write the local blog, "Fitness, Faith and Friendship" offers that her mission is to invest in people, which is why she is a part of the Victoria Area Road Runners Association.

Ofelia offers, "My favorite quote that I carry with me is "Consistency beats skill, even on the holidays. It's not about excuses, it's about consistency. It really is that simple."

On a fun side note, Ofelia's first 5K was for the Sweat Equity Challenge which I was a part of to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity. Her love of running started with my first organized 5K!


Maybe this is the year to start a new family Thanksgiving tradition?

Take a run with family and friends at the Turkey Trot and then dig in?

Alright turkeys, I'm motivated! Let's run!
