Sara D's thoughts:

What a great local race the weekend after Thanksgiving! I ran this race last year and when I booked my tickets to come home for Thanksgiving this year, I immediately signed up for the Turkey Trot again. I love it! Busse Woods is absolutely beautiful to run through, you don't want to miss it!

Pros:
+Easy Packet Pickups at local running shops: Plus, if you picked up your packet early, you got 10% off at Dick Pond Athletics! My sister picked up my packet this year and you needed to sign a waiver to let someone else pick up your packet, which I thought was nice.
+Gorgeous Scenery
+2 parking locations, one at the start and one at the finish. The parking lots at the start seemed a little busy, but there was plenty of parking at the finish where we parked. There were shuttles to take us to the start as well.
+Great race week emails with FAQs and helpful information
+Finisher medal for everyone, cinnamon rolls, chicken noodle soup, and water at the end of the race!

Cons:
-Though there were plenty of shuttles, they didn't exactly drop us off at the start. There was about a .25 mile walk from the drop off location to the start
-The pathways got a little crowded at times, but it was nothing that was unmanageable

I truly hope I get to run this again next year. I love this race so much!
