It’s almost race season! Sure, there are a few races during the winter, but as we hit April and especially May, there are many more local road races to consider. Where I am in the metro Detroit area you could find a 5k or 10k almost every weekend. I have my few favorites and usually I kick off the season with the Oak Apple Run but this year I may add a few more. The race calendar on runmichigan.com is a great tool. Just enter the race distance or search all events by month. Having a goal race to work toward is a great motivator. So, mark your calendar, map your training plan and get started.
