It’s Race Season!

Two races in one week and a third one coming up.  All of a sudden it’s race season here in Michigan!

I enjoy running all year but I especially enjoy race season so I can try to beat my past times in 5ks, 10ks and half-marathons.  Tuesday I ran a decent time in the Grand Prix Shakedown 5k on Belle Isle in Detroit.  Even though my 24:31 was only good enough for tenth in my division, it was fun to run with several teammates from work. (Especially since I beat almost all of them even though I am 20+ years older).
