Living like a Kenyan

I participated in the Fifth Third River Bank Run on Saturday in Grand Rapids, MI. The race was the USATF National 25K Championships and I was able to go because of my affiliation with Team Good River (special thanks to Tim Budic who continually drives the team forward). TGR had received free entries and elite status. What a cool race. Great day, great town, great course. A perfect prequel to the Cleveland Marathon on 5/20. Best of all was getting to hang out with the likes of Greg Meyer, Bill Rodgers, and the best young American distance runners. The Brooks-Hanson team was strong, but TGR held its own. I think this would be a great club trip for 2008. We were treated like Kings from the special suite of our own before the race to the elite athletes area at the finish line. Very cool.
