Darn Jeff at Detroit Runner! If he hadn't posted this, I would never know about the race, but now that he made me aware of it, I want to do it! This race has quite possibly the funniest medal ever:
The details are that it's a Cleveland race in December, which is not a place I necessarily want to visit (unless it's to see the Tigers play at Jacobs). I especially don't want to go in the winter, not to mention it's awfully far to drive for a 58 minute run.
All valid arguments, yet the race organizers tempt us further with a "virtual" option. Runners doing this option sign up and run the distance at home, or wherever, and the race folk mails the shirt and medal. It's $45 plus shipping, which is way too much for a 10k, but have you ever seen a funnier medal????
