Runners Take Your Mark

Runners across Ann Arbor have come out from treadmill hibernation and are taking to the blooming Gallup Park path and other popular running routes throughout the city this Spring. Many are gearing up for the annual Dexter-Ann Arbor Run, which takes off on Sunday, June 6 this year with a Half-Marathon, 10k, 5k, and Kids Race distance options for athletes. All race distances end in downtown Ann Arbor, where Taste of Ann Arbor vendors will be firing up their grills for this delicious event that takes place that same day. For those on the fence about making this year your year for running, check out some of the AADL's excellent collection of running training guides, including The Complete Book of Running, Runner's World Complete Book of Beginning Running, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Running, and Danny Dreyer's Chi Running.
