    Who has been instrumental in my health journey and why?”
    By Cyoung, September 24, 2017

    My father is my hero, my inspiration. The force behind my health journey. At the age of 40 he decided to pick up running long distances after many years of not doing so. He tells the story of how one of us his 5 children commented on how big his belly was getting being the catalyst for his running.  My dad is a marathoner.

    It is his life goal to run a marathon in all 50 states.  In 2014, on his 60th birthday, he ran his 60th marathon. I don’t make it to many of his races but to this one I did. It is because of his dedication and his love for running that I too picked up running. I can’t bring myself to run 26.2 miles, but I have ran several half marathons. In fact, I will be running my next one in a couple of weeks.  Running has been good for my physical, emotional, and mental health.  Had my dad not picked it up I don’t know that I would be as of an avid runner as I am today. At 63 years old, he is still going strong.  I’m very grateful to my hero, my inspiration, my dad!

    Looking ahead at Fall Events
    By Randy MacGeorge, September 19, 2017

    So, I was just using the calendar to help me select my fall races, and I noticed that the date is wrong for the Dirty Herd Fall Classic in Grand Rapids – It’s on Sunday, November 5th. For you east-side Champions, I think the Northville Dirty Herd Fall Classic is this Sunday.
