Spring has sprung, get your sneakers ready for a run

Today is the first day of Spring and the races are already scheduled and awaiting your registration.

This wasn't a great winter for outdoor running and I'm in my worst running shape after the cold-of-the-year swept through me and my boys. I'm not a fan of treadmill running, but appreciate all of you who are able to do it.

I'm registered for the Glass City Half Marathon in Toledo in April so there isn't much time to get the miles up. The month after that I am planning on my second Tough Mudder in Mansfield(I told myself I would never do another one. Never say never.)

Check the calendar below for a race that might fit your needs and please let me know if you have a local race that isn't on the calendar and I will add it. (werling@sanduskyregister.com)

Happy running this year and check back for more updates.
