Nashville Thanksgiving tradition: Boulevard Bolt

As I’ve blogged for several years, one of my favorite annual traditions in Nashville is the Thanksgiving Day “Boulevard Bolt,” a 5-mile run/walk on Belle Meade Boulevard to benefit several agencies in Nashville who serve the homeless. Tomorrow’s bolt is the 13th annual event and over the years it has grown into one of the largest 5-mile races in the nation. This year, due to a slight “training injury,” I won’t be jogging, but will be strolling the course with several thousand of my closest friends. It starts tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. and the predicted weather looks perfect, perhaps the best ever. If you live in Nashville and have never participated in this, I can’t stress how wonderful it is to see thousands of folks out enjoying the day, visiting with old friends, supporting a great cause and doing something healthy before spending the rest of the day feasting. Register here. Where to park. See you there.

    This was my first year at the Boulevard Bolt. I plan to make this event one of my annual traditions. It was great to be with the sea of people supporting Nashville’s homeless community.
