Here’s Why I Love The Turkey Day Run & Gobble Wobble Walk!

The Turkey Day Run is super fun, here are just a few things I love about it!

  • This was my first road race, back in 2019!  I have been hooked ever since!
  • What a great way to tour historic landmarks, the battery, and see tons of beautiful homes!
  • The Turkey Day Run long-sleeved t-shirts are the BEST (I am wearing the 2015 T-shirt right now).
  • The race is OVER 100 YEARS OLD!  FUN FACT!!
  • Over 8,000 participants from 35 states, Canada and Mexico
  • Walkers and runners allowed!
  • Super laid back attitude… Crisp, cool weather!
  • AND COSTUMES, DON’T LET ME FORGET TO TELL  YOU THAT PEOPLE RUN IN COSTUMES!!
  • And finally, I eat guilt-free for the rest of the day!

If you are into this kind of thing, or maybe even if you have never tried it, I highly recommend this event as a great way to start your Thanksgiving Holiday!  Hope to see you next week!

Join me at the Pitt Street Pharmacy, Thursday, Oct 3rd at 6:30 pm for The Grilled Cheese Sandwich Food Challenge!   Randy Santel, professional food eater, will be pursuing his goal of winning 1000 food challenges in all 50 states and 50 countries.

The current Pitt Street Pharmacy Grilled Cheese Eating Contest Record Holder is David Hester, who ate 27 grilled cheese sandwiches on May 30, 2013.  Think about it… that’s 54 pieces of bread and cheese, not to mention, a good bit of Duke’s mayonnaise!

And Santel plans to crush this number?  We will see if he can!

Santel is founder and owner of foodchallenges.com. He has won over 779 food challenges and has over 860,000 YouTube and Facebook followers.  And although he will be eating big, he is an advocate for nutrition, fitness and personal wellness and won the  2010 Men’s Health/Spartacus Body Transformation Challenge.

The Pitt Street Pharmacy is such a staple of our community, and how fun for us to come together to watch this exciting and, well, yes.. cheesy event!  See you there!
