You know in my mind I have these visions of my athletic self traveling the world to run some cool races….um yeah, I know…and I always seem to end up back at Disney.
I was perusing the interweb the other day and came across this medal for the Detroit Freepress Half Marathon in October.
How bad a$$ is this camaro medal?
Not only does this medal have the coolest muscle car out there IMO, its got homage to Vinyl – listen…. you can hear the crackling of the needle hitting the record now, Motown Microphone reference – “But Dad, It’s SMOKEY” and your basic downtown buildings motor city is known for.
OK, I am someone who “is not into the bling”…BUT seriously, this is one of the coolest medals I have seen! Very iconic USA you know?
Intrigued I googled the race…. check this out….
HELLO…can you say FLAT! OK, the hills are up a bridge over the river AND underneath the river in a tunnel….yeah a tunnel.. THAT TAKES YOU TO CANADA! Hey its a 2 country race.
I know, calm down…..I mean its Detroit…who exactly is jonesing to go to Detroit for leisure? I have flown into the Detroit airport, but only to drive up to the suburban areas for some sales calls back in the day when I was single….man that was some time ago.
I DO recall that Detroit surprised me, the trees reminded me of Atlanta….. OK the trees in the suburbs, but still…..
Anyhoo, this might be a race to check out for you haters of hills like me. For 2013….not.gonna.happen….but this race is filed away cuz seriously….I mean I am SO the casual runner and family obligations, well can’t exactly do every race I want you know…BUT….
1. Cool Bling – loving the Camaro
2. You run under a river through a tunnel
3. You hit 2 Countries…..
HOW COOL IS THAT!
In the words of the immortal band KISS…Get up
Everybody’s gonna move their feet
Everybody’s gonna leave their seat
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City
You run this one? Give me some feedback….love to hear it! Detroit in the fall…could be lovely.
