2018-10-17 - You are an athlete!

randy bridgesAs runners, we are not armchair quarterbacks wearing a jersey with someone else's name on it, we are the players! An athlete is someone who trains and gathers knowledge to be better at their sport. You are an athlete! When you line up to race, the spectators, the people on the sidelines, are cheering for YOU! You are out there setting the example, inspiring others and working to be a better you. A personal best at 5K is a heck of a lot more meaningful to us than the weekend stats of some quarterback throwing 200 yards. You are the real deal! Now get out there and train.

Can I get your autograph?

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who thinks you should be wearing a jersey with your own name on the back!

PS: GOBBLE GOBBLE, ATHLETES! The temps have dropped and the holidays are right around the corner. Join us on Thanksgiving morning for a 5K or 1K trot around downtown Ann Arbor at the Turkey Trot! Hot chocolate at the finish, photos with Santa and Turkey Tom, long sleeve shirts to pre-registered participants, custom medals to all 5K finishers and festive medals to all 1K finishers. FUN BEFORE THE FEAST! REGISTER NOW!

PS: HO, HO, GO! Naughty or nice, walker or runner, come breathe in the December night air, burn a few holiday calories and give back to others!
