2017-10-18 - With a plan,yes, you can!

randy freepFor many of us who ran in Detroit, Grand Rapids or Chicago, the long key fall race is behind us and it's time to celebrate with the fun fall and winter run-for-fun events like (Shameless RF Event plug here) The Downtown Ann Arbor Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving Day or the Holiday Hustle in Dexter on December 9th. For some of us that have not yet jumped up to the half marathon or marathon distance, seeing our fellow runners accomplish these amazing goals helps inspire us, perhaps to commit to upping the ante and entering a spring marathon or half ... Like the Martian Invasion of Races on April 14th! The reality is, that if you get on a training schedule this far out, the training miles are far less daunting, making the goal look pretty darn realistic ... Let's do this!

With a plan, yes you can!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who loves every day of this running life.

PS: Speaking of the Turkey Trot... Beat the price increase! Ann Arbor Turkey Trot 5K and 1K Tot Trot prices go up tonight, October 19th at 11:59PM. Register now!

PS: NANU, NANU, EARTHLINGS! The martians are once again planning to invade Dearborn, MI. Don't miss the Martian Invasion of Races on April 14, 2018. 5K, 10K, 13.1M, 26K... or go for the MARTIAN FULL MARATHON! You've got the time to train, let's do this!
