When Registration is No Longer a Habit

Greenfield was one of the races I didn’t expect to join primarily because of its distance from home, but because of the free shuttle service I no longer have any excuse why I’d miss this race, and I don’t want to.  Running in an area I haven’t been is pretty exciting and the shuttle ride…
