Today I ran my first race of the year, the Brooksie Chill at the Mills 5k. I ran this race a couple years ago and it's a really fun route with a Rochester Mills beer finish. I won't be posting a race review on this race since I've run it in the past. Overall the race was good and organization was much better except for one spot on the course where runners were crossing each other from different directions. It seems this was a confusing part last time I ran it too. Feel free to check out the old review.

Up next is the Night of the Glow Leap Year 4 miler. This is a new race to me and I'm really looking forward to this. This will be my first glow in the dark race medal. Very cool huh?
I'll have a race review on this race. This race is held every four years on February 29th so I didn't want to miss out on it this year. It's held at Willow Metropark in New Boston at night! If you are interested in running it with me, go HERE to sign up or get more information.
I've formalized much of my 2016 schedule for races already and I've got some great ones coming up. You can check out the list HERE. This year I'm going to do things a little different when it comes to race reviews. I don't plan on doing a review on anything that I've already run in the past. While there are always minor changes year over year, it's pretty much the same race. Given that, I'll have less race reviews, but I do have several new races on the schedule for 2016.
As you may have noticed, I have not been posting here as much lately. I've been a bad blogger! Frankly, I have not had much to talk about running wise. I'm still running - in fact, I'll probably end over 1,400 miles for the year but there is nothing new to share with you.
I do tend to use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram more and it's very easy to use them rather than get on a computer and type up a post.
Given that, I am still doing product reviews and I'm also doing race reviews. The only thing is that I'm not running any races until next March! I know that seems like forever for me but my plan is to run my 100th race (and I've already run 99 races since September) in March because it was also my first 5k ever. It's the Corktown 5k race in Detroit and it's a great race! So.........that means no race reviews until then! It's actually very strange for me not to race for six months! I've had a hard time not being able to sign up for a few races but it is saving me money and I can deal with it.
I'm planning my 2016 racing year now and will add to this list over the next couple months. I'll also post a summary of my year sometime in December as well. Until then, follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for things that come to my mind that I post there.
