The Trots

Tryptophan, the ingredient in turkey that supposedly makes one all sleepy, is a bunch of bunk. You know what makes you want to lie in your own filth after tearing into a drumstick on Thanksgiving Day? You’re a lazy sack and need to move around.

Before passing out from the urban folktale, Eastsiders can hit up Red Mountain Park for the Mesa mi amigo’s Turkey Trot. The shindig includes a one-mile fun run/walk at 8:15 a.m., a two-mile version at 8:30, and a 10K run at 9.
