Exciting news in my world to share with you - I have been selected as a 2018 Detroit Free Press/Chemical Bank Marathon Ambassador! This marathon has an extra special place in my heart because not only is it my hometown marathon, it is where I ran my first 26.2 and qualified for the Boston Marathon in 2008. I have recorded several PR's on this course since 2008 and hope to do it again in 2018.
For those of you not familiar with the race, it takes place the weekend of October 20th and 21st, 2018. There are a variety of race distances: 1 Mile, 5K, U.S. Only Half Marathon, International Half Marathon, Marathon, and Marathon Relay. There is something for everyone! The International Half Marathon and Marathon courses also feature the famous Underwater Mile, where you cross from Canada back into the United States through the Windsor Tunnel.
Stay tuned for a lot more about this awesome race over the coming months, including a registration discount code! I can't wait to start my new role.
