Gobble Gallop Race ReportThis may be one of my favorite race shirts! Isn't it cute? And it's a tech fabric too, so very comfy. The race was on Thanksgiving, and was very cold. Windy too. My car thermometer said 19 while I was on my way there, it was probably in the low 20's by the time the race started.
The Hendricks Regional Health YMCA in Avon sponsors this race, and it mostly takes place on the fitness trails at the Y, with a little bit being on the roads in the neighborhood just by the Y. It's a completely flat course, and a very nice place to run. The big Thanksgiving race in the Indy area is the Drumstick Dash in Broad Ripple, with thousands of people participating. This one was still pretty big also, though. The official results page says 526 people finished the race, and that doesn't count kids in strollers.
Interesting side note: According to Runner's World, Thanksgiving is the most popular day for road racing in the U.S.
