Despite below freezing temperatures and slushy snow, more than 500 runners showed up for the Turkeyman Trot.
The 5K run/walk went through the streets of downtown Lansing onto the River Walk. It was slippery, but runners took their time and enjoyed the scenery.
Runners say they stay motivated to keep fit because the organized races, such as this one, are so fun. They also say running on Thanksgiving morning allows them to indulge more at the dinner table.
