Last year was the dawn of the Turkey Troticello, Charlottesville's premier annual Thanksgiving race. And what a grand success it was!
This (free) 2 mile run/walk leading right up to the gates of Monticello was the seminal event of last year's Thanksgiving festivities. Tens of people gathered to experience the brisk Jeffersonian air and autumnal nostalgia, don (inexpensive) t-shirts, and join company with other average Joes from main street in a feat of stamina before retiring to hearth and home to partake in cranberry-flavored festivities that those pilgrims fought so hard for them to have.
Where else would any self-respecting Charlottesvillian want to be on Thanksgiving morning!
