Easy choice, right? Sleep in (its a holiday, fer crissake); slurp a few cold ones while the stoves doing its thing; oink out on turkey and the works; seriously OD on TV football and pumpkin pieor drag yourself out of bed at like 5 a.m.; get your bleary-eyed self down to the chilly harbor by the recommended 6 a.m. for the annual Dana Point Turkey Trot which benefits Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County; slog through a 10K or 5K (theres also a kids fun run); collapse in a sweaty heap (hopefully at the finish line), swearing that next year youre actually going to train. Run, so others can eat? We know youll do the right thing. (Wake us when you get home, okay?)
