Metalhead Ned Ran a 5k and Finished
If you saw my previous post about me running a 5k, you will know that I am no runner. However, I decided to give it a shot. It seems like everyone is doing runs these days and there is a 5k for everything. My wife's workplace at KDL had a fun-run this past weekend, and for some crazy reason, I …
Metalhead Ned Preps For His First 5K Run
I am not really a runner, nor am I a fitness junkie. Jackie and Eric Zane are the runners at this station, so when I look at them, it can be pretty intimidating.

Jackie Runs The Grand Rapids Half Marathon
Sunday was the 10th annual Grand Rapids Marathon and Half Marathon.

Photos From Jackie’s Finish At The Air Force Marathon
Last Saturday I raced in the Air Force Marathon, fantastic experience with some of my running friends!  I opened my email today to find some photos that were taken during the race.  When I look back to running I remember feeling really crappy but in these photos I just look like a goof ball!  Mile 9…
Jackie Completes The Air Force Marathon
What can I say about the Air Force Marathon?  It is AWESOME! I don't know if I would be saying this if the stars hadn't aligned for me and I hadn't ran what was basically the best marathon I ever ran!
