We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of tasty food, laughter, friendship, and gratitude.
A large number of our athletes participated in a Turkey Trot this year, whether it was to race, or to run with family/kids. A huge shout-out to Jamie for being overall female at the Springfield Turkey Trot (7,000+ runners). Another huge shout-out to Angie - she's been trying to beat a certain individual at the Ft. Myers turkey trot for years. This year she did it! Way to go, ladies!

Whether you enjoyed a leisurely run with your family or raced your hardest, we hope you enjoyed trotting. The Turkey Trot is such a fun event - no matter where you go. It's always fun to see so many families enjoying the morning together.
A couple reminders: We are planning to do the ShamRox 15k/5k/Beer Mile for our next team event. It is in Springfield on March 12. Register tonight (Monday) by 11:59pm using the code BLACKFRIDAY15 for 15% off your registration (this also applies to GoGirl for those of you racing in that event).
Nick and Joy are going to start doing workouts Monday evenings at Harke Park at 6pm. This won't be structured - just come get your workout in. It's more of an accountability thing, and a way for us to meet and make sure our workouts get done. If you're using one of the training plans we wrote for you, you will have an additional speed workout (in addition to TFC). This is a good chance to knock it out.
Our Christmas party will be on December 10 (Thursday) at 6:30pm at Ocean Zen in Springfield. We have about 23 who have RSVPd so far. If you haven't let us know that you'll be attending, please do so ASAP so we can get an accurate count to the restaurant. Spouses/dates welcome. Leave the kids at home this time.
We will meet on December 14 (Monday) at 6:30pm for a group run to look at the Christmas lights. We'll let you know where soon. We need to scope it out and see where the best lights are! Please feel free to bring friends along, or anyone that might be interested in joining our team. This will be laid back and fun. We won't meet at Harke for speedwork on this date.
Thanks for being an awesome team. We are really excited about what the future holds for TFC.
If we don't see you tonight at Harke, we will see you on Wednesday morning (Harke) for 2x1600m repeats followed by 8x200.
