Great job Windsor Squash and Fitness Club Runners on completing the Detroit Free Press 1/2 Marathon!

These runners completed 18 weeks of training with Erin Porter in her 1/2 Marathon Training Clinic. Excellent work Terese Mingay, Kathleen Bryan, Cathyna Soukthavone, Katie Paterson, Mark Beggs, Gudrin Bildfell, Mark Askew, Martine Askew, Sharon Strosberg, Paola Francis, Jackie Gianotti, Gregg Mayville, Lois Wares, Erica Lester, and Sal Mazzarelli.

Way to Go WS&F Runners!!!

On Sunday April 3rd, the Running Factory held their annual Miracle Run at Malden Park.  They run a series of 7 races over the season with each race raising money for a charitable organization.  Proceeds from this year’s Miracle Run were to benefit local Crime Stoppers.

The Miracle Run, is likely the most challenging of the series.  No matter if you’re running the 5km or 10 mile event, the course wraps through Malden Park and provides for some grueling hill climbs throughout the race.

Windsor Squash & Fitness Club is very proud of the 12 members who completed the courses in their race catogories.   Also, a special congratulations must go out to Erin Porter, who was the 1st female to cross the finish line in the 10 mile event.   Erin’s hard work training is clearly paying off as she readies herself for her 2nd IronMan in Germany later this year.

Congratulations to all the runners who participated, we look forward to following your progress throughout the season.
