It’s official! I’m all registered for the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon. I’ll be heading up there the Friday night before the race and will be working the Women’s Running Magazine booth again this year at the expo. I’m stoked because the last time I worked this race, I didn’t actually get to run it.
The course for this one is pretty cool because you get to run into another country – Canada! I haven’t been out of the country in a while. My passport has been feeling neglected lately and is just collecting dust. I suppose I should aim a little higher than a country that borders my own, but this will have to do for now. I may run off course and try to find some Canadian souvenirs so I can show off how I have been travelling the world.
Street corner t-shirts, always a good idea.
I plan to use this as a training run for the Miami Marathon and just to add to my bling bling collection. I’m a total medal junkie. And the medal for Detroit is totally rockin. Take a look…
And that’s all she wrote. Seriously though, look me up if you are in Detroit. And have a great weekend peeps!
YAY, B.o.B. is the Motor City! I'm sure Red will take up all your time but I will see you!
Awesome. I'll be sure to stop by and see you at the expo. I'll be running the full this year and can't wait! It seems lots of bloggers are doing this race this year. I have last year's medal and you will love it!
How exciting! I'm running the half too! I'll be hitting up the expo on Friday though, which means I won't get to meet you at there. Maybe race day! I love that we'll run to Canada and back!
Hey – not sure what happened to the speed post but let me say this if you want to run faster then run f'n faster. Why are you concerned about what others think? If your body and mind says to go, then go. The others will still be running and you can hang out with them when its all said and done.
We run, swim, bike for ourselves not for others. Run fast, run strong!
Now, onto this…..awesome. Congrats on signing up. Now when you show up in Detroit City…..RUN FAST!
Very exciting!!! Go BOB!!!
Best of luck! Awesome that you get to run to a different country and back during a race!
AAAAhhhhh, you KNOW the Detroit Free Press Marathon/Half has a HUGE place in my heart (it was my first marathon). It's a great race. And that medal this year is sweet!
