If you’re a Michigan runner, you MUST know about the Rock CF Rivers Half Marathon. Next years run takes place Sunday, March 30 2014 in Grosse Ile, Michigan. They offer a Half, Relay, and a 5k… all with shirts and medals. What can you say… this is the race that all races should strive to be. Great organization, awesome swag, scenic course, and the best post-race food around.
This race also has special meaning to me as it was my first ever 5k. I had only been running for around a month… and that was all treadmill. Rock CF marked my first venture outside, my first medal, and my first run with the GF. This is the one that got me hooked. Needless to say, this race isn’t optional for me it’s a must do! This year the GF and I are tossing around the idea of doing the relay together. The only downside of that is the waiting …unless we get 2 other teammates to run then we could do the same stretch…. hmmmm

I had my medal and bib framed… I want to do this to all my medals but the GF suggested a medal holder would be a more efficient use of space lol.
