2020.01.23 - Winter grinds on

randy winterIt sure helps to have future running goals to motivate us out door on days like these. Perhaps a shameless plug for our events but we do have a calendar full of fun stuff this year. The newest addition is the Island Time 24, 12 and 6 hour runs on May 29th and 30th. The runs finish into a beer garden with food trucks and live music, including a steel drum band and others. This run allows you to set a goal and finish it on your terms, not worrying about cut off times. Perhaps running your longest run ever, maybe the marathon distance or running your age. You can reach your goal and continue on to a greater goal or number of miles. The theme and fun stuff we have planned will distract you from the effort and keep you going! A race series like the "Thirsty 3", starting with a beer run at Atwater Brewery in Detroit, followed by a summer wine run at Sandhill Crane Vineyards and finishing with a fall hard cider run at Almar Orchards in Flushing will keep the fire lit all year.

With a plan, you will get there!
