What does team USA do on Thanksgiving?

If you were like me you were hoping this was about how athletes eat on Thanksgiving. But we hear so much about food (don’t get us wrong, we like to share as much as we can with you about getting the fueling thing right) but take a step away from food for a second and listen to what athletes do outside of competing and eating…. Wishing all our readers the happiest of Thanksgivings!
