Anna and personal trainer  Erin Porter after the Tampa Bay Gasparilla 1/2 Marathon on March 4, 2012.  Anna ran a personal best 2:26 and Erin completed  in 1:41.  It was a great race, with a pirate theme.  Both Erin and Anna took time to celebrate and enjoy the post race sun. 

Erin is a 3 time IronMan and has been helping her clients achieve their fitness goals for over 10 years.  She runs a very popular half-marathon clinic that leads into the Detroit Free Press Marathon in October.  Check back here or on our facebook page (www.facebook.com/windsorsquashfitness) as the running group will start up again in the spring

Way to Go WS&F Runners!!!

Monday, April 11th, 2011

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.
