LetsRun.com Weekly
We know yesterday was the day for giving thanks, but this newsletter goes out on Fridays, so we're doing it today.

We're thankful at plenty here at LetsRun.com. We're thankful for the front-liner workers who have risked their health for the rest of us throughout this pandemic. We're thankful for the scientists working toward a vaccine that is (hopefully) on the way. We're thankful for the race organizers, coaches and elite athletes (such as Keira D'Amato, above) who have worked to put on events so that we still have a chance to follow this wonderful sport of ours. And we're thankful to you, our readers, for visiting LetsRun.com every day and being part of our community.

So however you celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday -- perhaps preceded by a solo turkey trot -- we hope you had a great holiday. And if you were too busy to check out the stories we pumped out this week (the running world never stops!), well, that's what this newsletter is for.

Gobble gobble...well, you know the rest.
