It has been an odd and brutal winter. Spring seems to have taken us by surprise and it's hard to wrap our heads around the idea that it's time to line up and enjoy some races! CHARGE!!! Next up will be the Martian Invasion of Races, the 5K and 10K courses are perfect for those of us not quite ready for a spring Half or Full Marathon! I've run plenty of events in my life and can say that the Martian 10K course is a great one. It starts with 3 miles of stately old Dearborn neighborhoods followed by 3 miles of a wide, winding paved path through woodlands skirting the back of The University of Michigan Dearborn and past the Fairlane Manor, an architectural gem built by Henry Ford and his bride Clara at the turn of the century. The races start and finish in the heart of downtown West Dearborn and many bars and restaurants in town have post-race discounts and specials for those wearing a race medal!
It's time to COMMIT and RUN,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who is digging a bit of sunshine and looking forward to the upcoming invasion.
