I hope July finds you all happy, healthy, and enjoying the summer months that are finally finding their way to us! I know that I am certainly taking advantage of the warmer weather to get outside and log some miles! And with another turn of the calendar page, it’s time for July goals — and starting out with a BANG!
A little before noon on a blustery March day in Wisconsin, stood a huddled mass of almost 2,000 people. “Crazy” as some might call us. (When you’re a runner, being called a “crazy” has a strange way of becoming a complement… so, smile and say thank you!)
We were waiting. Jumping, stretching, talking, laughing. The excitement of the race before us hung in the air… And it wasn’t just the excitement to get moving forward and warm-up. It was the thrill of the first race of the year (for most) and anticipation of the new running season.
