It’s been a long time since I actually ran a half in Michigan. I think the last one was the BayShore one. I don’t even have photos of the actual race, just us goofin’ off in Traverse City. Like this one of my friend Meche.
But, Bayshore is a gorgeous race. You see the water of Traverse Bay the whole race and it’s pretty much all downhill. The full, you go up and then back down and I would not do it if you paid me. Well, at least that’s how it was in like 2011.
I’ve run a few others in Michigan but this was probably my favorite. Detroit was my first marathon and I suggest the half if you like the idea of running over the bridge and through the tunnel to Canada. For asthma, the tunnel sucks – had to walk because, even with my inhaler, I couldn’t breathe.
Until next time!
