Ali on the Run Show Episode 310: The Great Turkey Trot of 2014

“You can do it, buddy!”

It’s an Ali on the Run Show Thanksgiving tradition! Six years ago, my now-husband, Brian, and I lined up at the start of two very different Turkey Trots. Though both races were five miles, the outcomes were vastly dissimilar. I ran the Prospect Park Track Club Turkey Trot in Brooklyn, NY, in a respectable 38:41 — a 7:44 minute-per-mile pace. Meanwhile, in Rhode Island, Brian was racing the Newport Pie Run. He had big dreams and big goals. Here’s a dramatic retelling of how his race went. Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Hi Ali,
    I am a longtime follow and fan, so I am always baffled and disappointed to see you share this story every year. I just don’t see what is so incredibly funny about mistaking Brian for someone with special needs. It just doesn’t seem in the spirit of your brand. In fact, an athlete recently became the first person with Down Syndrome to complete an Ironman. THAT would be a cool story/guest to have on your podcast.
