Rest day....

Rest day today.  Not used to getting a rest day during the week.  The change is kind of nice!


I'm signed up for another race in two weeks.  Normally I wait a month between races but I did not want to miss this one.  This one is a hometown run called Alpenfest which is located in downtown Gaylord.  I really enjoyed doing this race last year for several reasons:

1)  It's smaller which is nice
2)  It's got some challenge to it - you get a couple hills
3)  It's a nice run from downtown Gaylord through neighborhoods and then through Aspen Park which is scenic and feels in the woods.
4)  It's nice and close to my cottage so I don't have to get up at 4am to go to it.  Haha!
5)  They had strawberries at last years finish and gave away some nice prizes if you placed in your AG.
6)  It's only $25
7)  The shirt they gave away last year was an underarmour shirt - really nice.

This year the race is being run by so it will be interesting to see how they do with races.

This is a company that does many of the tri's in Michigan, and since I've been thinking of doing a tri next year, it will be good to rate how they manage a race to give me an idea how the tri would be run.  I've heard good things about them.

Have a great day and......Keep Running!!!!!!


  1. That sounds like a great race. I hope the management changes don't make too much of an impact on it!

  2. I did a 3D triathlon last summer, and it was very well organized. Kenny and his team do a great job of putting on races. Hope you enjoy yours!

  3. I enjoyed a rest day today, too :)
