I’m making this post short and sweet because I want to get right to the exciting news (and I’m also desperately in need of laying down after running 12 miles with Emma today!)

13043383_778949448916075_8239665627660089916_nThis past week I announced I had one free team entry to this month’s Run the Ridge 2x5K Team Relay to give away. Each team member runs a scenic trail 5K during this awesome spring race at Timber Ridge RV & Recreation Resort in Traverse City. (I’ve participated with my family these past few years and we’ve all had a blast running this race as teams together.)

Thanks to everyone who entered this giveaway by sharing what they love about running in the springtime. The winner, chosen at random, is …

Laurie Coulter!

Here’s what Laurie had to say about running this time of year:

“The best parts about spring running are the smell of fresh dirt as you run through the newly exposed trails, the sun shining through the budding trees, the spring birds back to greet you with a song, and the constant thoughts of all the many hours of running that lie ahead on the most beautiful trail system on earth … The Vasa!”

Congratulations, Laurie! To claim your prize, please email me ASAP at michiganrunnergirl [at] gmail [dot] com

Online registration for this race, set for early Saturday evening, May 14, is ongoing through May 12 (race day registration is available, too) — learn more and sign up here »
