Groovy Girls Go …….. For Chocolatey Goodness

Sometimes plans just fall into place, even when they aren’t what you planned.   As we came down the stairs leading to the Detroit Riverwalk I was nearly stopped in my tracks by the beauty. Luckily, it only took my breathe away for a second. The sun was a firey red ball shooting out across […]

Groovy Girls Go ……… Major Miles with Smiles

“Huddle up Downtown Runner Guys and ummmmm Gal.” Ken roars as he gets everyone gathered for the start of my weekly 10k speed work. The Detroit Runners and Walkers is a club like no other, with people like no other!  It’s my weekly “playing,” penned in on my schedule that doesn’t get changed for much […]

Groovy Girls Go Fast to First at the Grand Prix Shakedown…….

Groovy Girls run routes that we will never run again…

Want to be on our team?

This Sunday, after getting up early (even earlier with the time change!) to get our run in, we volunteered as part of the Downtown Runners and Walkers group to marshall at the Corktown St Patrick’s Day 5k race. We were prescribed a location at Michigan Ave and 3rd, and after Starbucks, parking and picking up […]

Groovy Girls Go Even If They Don’t Know How To Go……..

  Once upon a time I was merely a “mid-distance” runner as my high school jacket boasted.  I never dreamed I’d run in double digits. Quite frankly, I had no idea people really did that. Then, my runner friend coaxed me to the finish, puking and dry heaving, but crossing 13.1.  Then I wondered if […]

Groovy Girls Go ‘Til Their Legs Fall Off……..

Detroit Endurance Lab sent out an offer to Downtown Runners and Walkers that wasn’t to resist!  A discount code to an endurance bike race that boasted Free Beer and Pierogis ……. You had us at Endurance. I saw the code come through on a social network site and realized it was Winter Blast weekend in Detroit. […]

We always wave to our fans and when we earn a trophy we alert the media!

Montana had a little help with forming the paragraphs – apparently they don’t cover those in kindergarten…but all quotes are her own! 😉 I knew the day would come when Montana Skye would want to lace up and toe the line at a race.  She’s, in many ways, already paid her dues.  She’s been Jostled […]
