slides: 6 Turkey Trots + Holiday Runs in Rhode Island

Monday, November 19, 2012

 

Not looking forward to the guilt that will inevitably set in after enjoying your delicious Thanksgiving dinner? You're within good reason. The average American gains 7 to 12 pounds between the Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays. According to Kimberly S. Maloomian, RD, LDN, the Lead Dietitian at the Center for Bariatric Surgery at the Miriam Hospital, just the Thanksgiving dinner and dessert can add up to 1800-2200 calories. Add in appetizers, alcohol, or soda drinks, and you're looking at about 2600 calories. You'd have to run about 22-26 miles to burn all that off.

Combat those extra holiday pounds by lacing up for one of these local Turkey Trots and other Thanksgiving races! We break down a couple of major threats to your waistline and have the races to erase those inches.
