A reminder to those looking for something to do on Thanksgiving morning -- the Turkey Trot is filling up quickly. They were over 12,000 in registration numbers already the last time I checked, and the limit is 14,000 this year (up from 13,000). Therefore ... you might want to get that done in the very near future.
By the way, Sunday's running column is on the Trot ... of course. I'm not sure anyone else would have come up with this particular angle about the annual race.
Now for the weekend schedule, courtesy of buffalorunners.com:
* Vikings for Vets 5K, 1717 Bedell Road, Grand Island, 9 a.m. Saturday, 308-5775.
* Lindsay's Legacy Run, 5K, Clinton Park in Tonawanda, 11 a.m. Saturday, 695-7406. This was the biggest 5K in Western New York last year, thanks in part to the participation of Girls on the Run. Nice course, great postrace spread and party, wonderful premiums ... what's not to like? I've never missed one.
* Veterans Day 5K, One Naval Park Cove in Buffalo, 11 a.m. Sunday, 868-1055. It's interesting that as the weather turns bad, more and more races seem to pop up along the waterfront. We have one next week as well as the Freezer 5K before Christmas.
