Autumn brings cooler temperatures, fall colors on trees (followed by the need to rake leaves), pumpkins and turkey trots? Well, yes. This year the Living Well Committee will hold the fourth annual Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. That’s coming up soon on November 22. It’s truly an event for the whole family because it’s a fun “5K” run/walk – that’s 3.1 miles in Texas terminology. Thanksgiving and turkey costumes are welcome, and so are the four-legged turkeys in your family if they’re on a leash.
The starting time will be at 9:00 a.m. so plan to gather in front of the clubhouse by 8:45 a.m. You may run or walk the 5k or 3.1 miles as fast or as slow as you like. The Wildhorse Grill will provide water and cookies this year when you make it across the finish line.
In early October, when Medicare enrollment came into focus for many people, Robson resident and Medicare expert, Jackie Hixson, presented a Medicare overview and answered numerous questions to a packed room in the clubhouse.
Living Well is not a Robson club; it is a committee staffed by resident volunteers and is part of our Homeowner’s Association. Under its umbrella are the Friday morning Farmers Markets, frequent blood pressure checks, monthly walk-abouts, seminars with guest speakers, health-related workshops and special events like the Olympics and Turkey Trot. Their website (www.rrlwc.com) has a calendar of events, online forms to sign up for events and email reminders, photos from past events and other useful information.
