A few words with Greg Meyer

The New Year
I hope everyone is healthy and energized for the final 4 months of training for the Amway River Bank Run   If you’ve slacked off a little over the holidays now is a great time to resolve to re-dedicate yourself to the training. It all starts with the decision to get out the door and run... so get out there.

Winter seems to be returning minus a lot of snow.  Remember to layer up when you run, protect your skin, and try to run into any wind at the start of the run not the reverse!


25K Training Begins
As we get ready for winter in Michigan, spring is around the corner ... And time to think about getting ready for the greatest race in Michigan, the Amway River Bank Run!   Training guides are available online …a training program for about every level and talent. Also, we have our first training run on Saturday, December 1 - 8a at the David D. Hunting YMCA in downtown GR.  A short talk followed by a nice run…followed by me leaving for Hawaii and the Honolulu Marathon! Yes, hate me if you must, but someone needs to go every year and remind those Hawaiians how lucky they are!

Remember to dress warm and in layers…choose your running routes with care as the snow piles up and run with some people! We don’t all bite…but if you don’t train, the 25K will certainly take a bite out of you!

See you on the Y on the 1st
