Pre-Turkey Interval Run?

Pre-Turkey Interval Run?

Last night I joined a group for a 5 mile interval workout entitled, “Pre-Turkey Day Run.”  Not knowing where exactly the group meet, I arrived late.  While trying to follow the GPS, I saw a bunch of runners (with blinking lights on their waistlines) on the sidewalk.   I sort of knew it was the(…)
