OT - Auto Traffic and Ann Arbor Marathon
Thanks for the reminder. It was a bit of a pain trying to make my commute to work last year with the marathon.
Is this your first?
Those are some impressive numbers. My mom has run a similar number of marathons and was the former race director for the Detroit Free Press Marathon so I probably know more about marathoning than I want to. Have you run the A2 before? I heard a lot of complaints about the course in its inaugural year. Not training for 4+ years and running a marathon seems risky (assuming you attempt to complete it). Good luck!
I've never attended a Spring Game, and I'll be there picking up my race packet, can you just get tickets at the door?
I think you must be running the Big House 5K, which is next week. This weekend is the Ann Arbor Marathon.
Packet pickup for the BH5K is at Crisler during the Spring Game. Unless things have changed you don't need tickets to go to the Spring Game. Just walk in and sit down.
Well, I guess that means I won't be going to Ann Arbor to watch the Elite 8 games, no matter how tonight goes.
I thought this thread was going to be about an auto parts store and/or gas station.
I'll be running the half marathon this year. They just sent out an email saying the Arb is now not part of the course since the trail is still covered in ice.
I like the route for the half this year. I don't think I would like the marathon though since you run it twice. That would seem to really ratchet up the mental fatigue. Please report back how it went!
