The Detroit Free Press/Talmer Bank Marathon and 1/2 Marathon are Sunday October 18th! With only 17 days left until race day I hope you feel strong and have completed a few long runs. For those of you running the international races they start at 7am. When you get to the Ambassador Bridge and start running up that steep incline to the top, a beautiful international sunrise will be there to greet you. That is by far my favorite part of the race other than crossing the finish line and trying to make it back to Birmingham in time for a Yoga Class! Whether you are running in one of these races for the first time or fifth time, training for the race is key to reaching your finish time goal. Hopefully you have been following your training plan and you feel powerful and confident...the countdown to the Marathon has begun!
