I have a new plan for the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon and I am really excited about it. Back on March 9th I had my PT appointment with Alisha at Elite Sports and Orthopedic Physical Therapy. I won't go into detail, because you can read about it here, but long and the short of it was I ran. Alisha took me for a 3/4 mile run to test the hip, before cutting me loose to slowly start reintroducing my body to running.
When we were finished she asked me if I was interested in running on a relay team that she was thinking of assembling for the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon. It immediately reminded me of all the fun I had doing the Ragnar relay back in 2014. You can read about it here: Ragnar Recap 1, Ragnar Recap 2, Ragnar Recap 3. Of course I said yes! Now I just have to worry about getting my mileage up to ensure I can cover the leg I am assigned.
The Yark Subaru 5-Person Relay takes place during the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon and consists of five team members each running a portion of the race at varying distances. For those that aren't ready to tackle a full or even a half marathon but wants to go further than a 5K than this race is the perfect way to join in on the fun.
