There is lots of news to report this month. Our economy is in crisis, banks are failing, the atmosphere is warming up and there is war and violence everywhere. What a crazy messed-up world we live in! At times like this there is an even greater need for a good run, walk or bike ride. Exercise may not cure the world's problems, but it will definately make you feel better.
First and foremost, the Badgerland Striders will be hosting the South Shore Half-Marathon on Saturday, April 11th. (www.badgerlandstriders.org) This race kicks off the running season and is a great race. The 13.1-mile course starts at South Shore Park in Bay View and runs along the Oak Leaf Trail through Bay View, St. Francis, Cudahy and South Milwaukee. After reaching the half-way point in South Milwaukee the course reverses direction and runners follow the same course north back to the starting point in South Shore Park.
