Yesterday, prior to the Thanksgiving tummy-stuffing festivities, families and friends suited up in turkey garb and sneakers to run and walk local Turkey Trots around the country. In Buffalo, New York, for example, 14,000 runners braved the cold to run the city’s 119th annual race. Here at HuffPost Healthy Living, we love any tradition that gets people moving, so we asked our readers to share some of their best Turkey Trot shots. Below are a few trotters in all their glory. Share your loveliest Thanksgiving race photos with us with the hashtag #hptrot and we’ll share some of our favorites!
