Hey everyone get out there and run, it’s an absolutely beautiful day for it!! Are you having trouble staying motivated? Reach out, the club is still here for you or DM me personally 😁
With it being the first Wednesday without the group, I was definitely thinking of you all 🥺 I wore my Highlights Loops shirt today bc I got the news this morning that they have totally canceled the race and I won’t get a shot to defend my title. “what a huge bummer” I was all in my head and running too fast so I only did 5 solo and picked up Lola for the rest to make myself slow down. Parker has been quite the lollygager lately so from now on anything he does will be unrecorded walk/ jog bonus mileage. To end this post on a positive note; running is my escape and my therapy on its own but today when I really needed it I had a neighbor say that she “sees me out here everyday and I have become her inspiration”. It definitely put a smile on my face!! Try to stay positive and healthy everyone!!

Any Saturday runs planned- I’m visiting family in a few weeks
what time do you guys run on Wednesdays at?
Anyone thinking of running Grand Island or Rock River Canyon this year? My partner and I have registered for both and have hotels booked, so I am gauging interest in room sharing and/or building a running group and/or cool people to explore the town, food, surrounding wilderness and waterfalls with! (if interested please message one of us for details!) Both races are held in Munising MI, one as expected is on the beautiful Grand Island offering cliffside views of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, the other runs along a less traveled segment of the North Country Trail, as well as Au Train and of course Rock River Canyon Wilderness. These events are hosted by Great Lakes Endurance and offer 13.1, 26.2 and 50k distances. Please visit the official GLE website for more details!

Hey everyone! Caitlin here. I was bummed we had to miss longboard last night, so I made up for it today by going on a solo long run! Hopefully we will be able to reschedule for sometime later in the year! Hope everyone is staying safe and getting in some peaceful runs this quarantine! ❤️🏃🏽‍♀️

I meant it! Let's see those runs!
Long post ahead.

Yes you all know I, Katie, can talk a lot, but I rarely do these posts. But after talking to a lot of you the last few days, I know we all still need that community and accountability right now. Getting out and running with races and groups cancelled and life as we know it upside-down seems daunting. So let's talk about it.

As many of you may know, I'm coming back from what we think was a tear in my calf. It happened during my race on Feb 16th. It hasn't been easy sitting still these last few weeks with everything going on and not seeing all of you, my friends, at the runs. Running has always been my way of coping with stress and anxiety.

I tried running after 2.5 weeks of rest hoping it was something simple. After two runs it did not work out. I was crushed, left wondering why I should bother doing the strength training or even think about running. Today, 4 weeks after the injury, was my second run of trying again. It wasn't an easy day mentally with everything going on. And we all know sometimes doing shorter runs can feel like they aren't worth it and we loose that motivation. BUT I dragging myself out and did a successful 1.5 miles. It's not much, bit it's exactly what I needed physically and mentally.

I hope you all are staying safe and healthy. If you need to talk or a motivational speech, reach out I'm here for you. (No mocking my photo attempt at 1.5 or general poor photo. Pictures are not my thing.)

Hi everyone, with heavy hearts we are going to cancel the group runs until further notice. As runners we know how important our community, both running and not, are to all of us. We recognize in these times that it is better safe than sick. Please take care of yourself and your loved ones.

We know many of us are continuing the run. Please share any stories or photos on the page to help keep each other inspired to keep working hard. While we are all keeping a safe distance our running family and community still exist. Let's inspire each other to keep going and stay strong.

We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who came out last night for our March first Wednesday run! We had 25+ people show up and Wyandotte Beer Co. did a fantastic job at hosting us! Hope to see everyone at our next one!

Don’t forget next Wednesday March 4th at 6:30pm we will be checking out Wyandotte Beer Company!! We will have a 4 and a 6 mile route mapped out then we’ll be sticking around afterwords for food and drinks. Hope you can make it!!

On December 15th, what a fabulous day!
We'll provide salad, pasta, pizza, non-alcoholic beverages and cake

The game room is where the fun will go down

At the end of the night you'll be filled with holiday cheer,
Because the holiday party comes but once a year!
