Thinking about R2R?

Have you been thinking about participating in the Romeo2Richmond races? (aka R2R) Before you know it Sept 14 will be here? In fact it already 13.1 Miles - Half Marathon Distancefeels like fall for many of us on Southeast Michigan. It is still summer and you still have time to get involved in R2R.

R2R is a fairly new event in the area but for many it is has become a fall tradition.
R2R raises money to for food banks in Macomb County, so you can feel good knowing your are races to help our community.

Each race takes place on a paved path that is well shaded by beautiful trees.
There are 3 events to choose from. The 5k, which is 3.1 miles. You are welcome to run or walk, or run/walk. Then is there is relay. You and a buddy split the half marathon course in half, each of you runs half of the half marathon, which is a little over 6 miles. Then of course there is the half marathon, 13.1 miles.

It’s not late too get yourself prepared for any of these events. You have about 6 weeks till race day. If you are thinking about the half marathon you should be able to run at 8-9 miles right now. If you are not there yet, I caution you that increasing mileage too quickly can lead to injury and a decrease performance. If you are can run 3 miles, why not find a buddy and train for the half relay. You have time to increase your mileage to 6 miles before Sept. 14.

You have 6 weeks to prepare for the 5k. Just give yourself 3x week and you can train to finish that 5k with a smile on your face.

Still not sure, Total Health Systems has free training programs available, just ask!
