Coach's Corner and Great Weather

Well it was a perfect day for an evening run through downtown Detroit. We actually had an opportunity to partake in food and beverage on the outside patio of Coach’s Corner. Even with the interruption of individuals inquiring about spare change, it was a good evening for the group. I am still amazed by Dave Dysert and his current streak of marathon performances, which I’ll post results for later.
We also had a visitor from New Jersey that was impressed with our little group. She was able to walk the mean streets of Detroit with Mary Berry as her bodyguard, way to go Mary!
For the very first time (and maybe the last time), we’ll be having our Tuesday evening run/walk from someone’s home. That’s right, Rick Robinson will open his door and fridge to the Downtown Runners/Walkers on May 23rd. This will be a mixture of interesting people from musicians, cyclist and of course, runners. Rick says to bring a dish or drink, ONLY if you feel like it. More details to come.
Since we’re on a similar level as the Hanson’s elite running team, we sent teams to a couple of out state events. Now this is why we need to have summer T-shirts, so everyone knows who we are as we collect our trophies! Anyway, here are results from the Indy Mini-Marathon and the Flying Pig Marathon & Half-Marathon:
