This may come as a surprise to those of you that know the Arena and its employees, but the Arena has a running club.
I know, I know! When you think of the Arena you think beer league softball, hockey, maybe even some stoner frisbee league…but not a running club! I mean runners are usually healthy. They don’t smoke. They might drink, but they don’t binge drink. And they certainly don’t fuel their bodies with bacon and cheese covered deep fried yumminess.
It started as a group of 3 girls: an ex-employee, a regular, and a current employee. And their desire to run spread across The Arena like the flu in a preschool.
The group has something like 30 members
Not all are active members
but, if you want to see a group of smoking, drinking, fried food eating maniacs cross the finish line, we will be running Big House, Big Heart in Ann Arbor…just don’t laugh at those of us that still run at a snail’s pace. And…buy us a beer when we’re done…we’re going to need one!
