Renewal by Andersen of Detroit Relay Team!

Borrowed from Trivium Racing's website
Didn't I just finish a race?  Haha!  Yes, I did but fortunately for me, I got an opportunity to run the Rockin' Relay in Detroit at Belle Isle courtesy of Renewal by Andersen of Detroit.  Go "like" their Facebook page for chances to win great stuff!  This makes for the busiest month for racing for me with 4 races in five weekends.

I won a race entry and will race as part of their relay team with three other runners.  Those three are Larry, who I've met through the Kona Running Company and, Megan and Alexis - also bloggers.

So this is the deal.  Run about 16 times around a 1.6 mile track, so basically, I only need to run a little over six miles to finish the marathon as a group.  A far cry from my typical long run or even race for that matter but I'll be starting marathon training next Monday so I've decided to skip my long run for this race.  Yes, it's true!  I figure I could use the break anyway.  This will be my second marathon relay as I did the Detroit Marathon in 2010 as a relay as well which was a great time.

I've run with the Renewal by Andersen of Detroit team in the past, and I originally was thinking that I had not run for them this year but I forgot about the Freeze your Franny race in January.  Poor Brandon really froze - at least us runners got to move around and get warm.  It had to be the coldest race I've ever run.  It's fortunate for me that I get to run this race with three other great runners that I also happen to know.  It should make for a really fun time.
Freeze your Franny 5k - and we did!
Full review of the race coming next week.  Don't forget to "like" Andersen's Facebook Page(HERE) for your chance to win a future race entry too.  Thanks to Renewal by Andersen of Detroit for sponsoring a spot for me to run on Saturday.  I look forward to it.

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