Too much turkey yet again in 2015? Plan ahead, eat a lot, then run a half marathon! Run all that pie and turkey off in the Kaiser Half Marathon and 5K, Saturday, November 28th at the Orange Beach Sports Complex

Hey, here’s an excuse to eat even more food while on Thanksgiving vacation in Gulf Shores, Alabama: Sign up for a run. Heck, even if you don’t run it, you’ll have an excuse for eating that extra piece of pie! Okay, I bet most of you, like me, will eat far more than even a mini-marathon will burn off, but hey, it’ll make you feel a smidgen better about it!

Learn more and register for the Thanksgiving Weekend Kaiser Half Marathon or 5K runs at Team Magic.
