I’m a casual runner and occasional triathlete. I’ve done a number of 5k and 10k runs. The Spear-It 5k at the National Asparagus Festival in Hart is the bomb! (Don’t get me started talking about asparagus.) Also the Fifth Third River Bank Run 25K and the full Bayshore Marathon, along with the Millennium, Reeds Lake and Grand Rapids triathlons. Started getting into those sports in the last five years so my knees are still good.
Happy to be on staff and coordinating the volunteers, which can be stressful but fun. I’m always worried that someone won’t come through for me – but they always do. Thanks to all the volunteers. Without you and your support there is no way we could get such a great event done.
I am also the volunteer coordinator for the Groundhog Marathon and serve as a board member of the Grand Rapids YMCA Service Club. At least once a month you’ll find me volunteering at Feeding America West Michigan.
