"[In 2002], Tim Holmes' son challenged him to run a marathon with him. Holmes, who own[ed] Holmes Chiropractic, accepted the challenge and started looking for training opportunities.
'I wanted to do something new, so I invited some of my friends and my patients to join me on Thanksgiving morning for a run. I thought it would be a good way to work up an appetite,' Holmes said. That first year, about 15 people showed up, he said, and the Turkey Trot was born. Now, he says, it has become something of a family tradition for a lot of people. 'We had 200 the second year, and it's just kept growing ever since.'"
