    Post Race Reflection
    By Andrea Johnson Zufelt, October 25, 2016

    This morning I woke up after my very rough attempt at a half marathon to the actual ability to walk. Like, without issues, really. Granted, I had taken some OTC pain reliever early this morning, but still. I was slightly surprised. And as I sit here at work and think about the weekend that I just experienced I think about, well, everything. I think back to the first group Gazelle Run Camp race I participated in….The

    Grand Rapids Half Marathon
    By Andrea Johnson Zufelt, October 25, 2016

    In July of 2014 I NEVER would have thought I would sign up for a half marathon. I thought I was crazy to just decide to “take up” running for fun, and run a 5k. In that time I have learned a lot about running. I have also met some fabulous people. THOSE people are who got me to and through today.

    My first post
    By protometal, October 24, 2016

    I’ve heard the first post is the toughest. Actually, I just made that up.

    My name is Josh and I am an *ahem* Masters Runner. I don’t look the part (good genes?) but I am over 40. The whole Masters thing is a polite way of saying “older”.

    I love running and racing. Wish I liked running in high school as much as I do now. Back then, distance running seemed like a chore and while I was fairly good at it, I never enjoyed it enough to really dedicate myself to it. Now, running is my escape. It can be and often is a method of stress relief.

    I am competitive (mostly against myself) and running helps with that. I’ve done half marathons and marathons, but am finding that I enjoy 5ks and 10ks right now.

    Hoping that this blog and being a part of Team Priority Health will encourage me to continue to improve as a runner and my fitness in general.

    Biggest Physical Accomplishment (To Date)
    By Jason, October 24, 2016

    Over the past few years, I feel I have meet a number of physical goals, and I have many more ahead of me. However, my biggest physical accomplishment, to date, has been completing a 60 mile bike ride from Lake St. Clair Metro Part to Belle Isle and back. The last 10 miles or so, were pretty rough, but I pushed through and the feeling I received crossing the finish line was exceptional!

    This year, I am training for my next biggest physical accomplishment – a half marathon.

    Turtle Race 2016
    By kri026, October 24, 2016

    Headed to Mackinaw Island this past weekend with my running friends for a tough trail run, but it was totally worth the view and the experience. I loved being an accountability partner for my sister in her first distance run over 3 miles, the furthest she has ever gone! So proud of her for running the entire race and not giving up!!! We crossed the finish together, it was sweet.
