I'll post in your thread if you post in mine. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br>
I used to live in Michigan...twice...1974 - 1981; then moved back in 1987 until I left for college and then for good (moved outa my parents house).<br><br>
I've been to Ann Arbor a bunch of times. My High School Girlfriend went to U of M. I graduated from Andover High School in Bloomfield Hills. (I was a transplant, no snobbery jokes required. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> )<br><br>
Did you ever live in Alabama or drive through it?<br><br>
New to this site, glad to see some locals....<br><br>
Lyon Township here. I too ran in shorts and a short sleeve shirt last night at Island Lake - wierd to run in the wind, rain, and dark in January and be warm!
Kevin - I run on the poto and at Island Lake soemwhat frequently.<br><br>
I also send out a weekly email list detailing trail runs/events in the area. If you are interested in joining the list send me a PM with your email address.<br><br>

Anyone running the Martian 1/2 or full on April 6th? It starts at UofM-Dearborn and runs thru Hines Park.<br><br>
I picked my 1st 1/2 to be in Ithaca, NY on 04/06/08 but if I can swing the drive in I'd rather do the Martian 1/2 (would be a good excuse for a trip home and I won't have to worry about parking b/c my dad lives right around the corner from the start).
Livonia runner : )<br><br>
Sara, I'm planning on doing the Martian 1/2.<br><br>
Don't let their website fool you. Even though their pictures indicate otherwise, last year I was only one I saw who dressed Martian-ish -- green feather boa and green glitter martian ears.
Michigan runners - Keep the date open - September 13, 2008.<br><br>
If all goes as planned I will be putting on a 5K in Ann Arbor in conjunction with the Homegrown Festival. It will definitely be a fun event with some cool local prizes and awards. I'll post more once details become more finalized.
This is not a race that I have done and at this point am not planning to this year but it sounds interesting - especially the pancake part. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#FFFFFF;"><b><span style="color:#000000;">Mt.
