2019-04-11 - Run, cheer, run!

martianA big weekend in Running is upon us, locally, the Martian Invasion of Races on Saturday in Dearborn and on Monday, The Boston Marathon. The running weather for Martian is looking perfect and you still have the chance to enter online until noon today, or you can register at the expo tomorrow, or race morning. With a 5K, 10K, 13.1 and 26.2, we can choose our challenge based on how our training is going ... or not going! It can be quite an inspirational day at Martian, those running the 5K or 10K won't have long to wait after their finish to see the Marathon leaders come in, around 10AM. A marathon finish line offers a powerful motivational experience for the spectator, seeing goals and dreams come true, live and in person is priceless. Try to make it to Dearborn for the experience, also, if you can sneak it in on Monday, catch some of the Boston Marathon coverage streaming online. https://www.baa.org/races/boston-marathon/watch/tv-coverage
Run, cheer, run!
