Time To Start Gearing Up For The Grand Rapids 5th/3rd River Bank Run
Each Wednesday I co-host the Take Five & Company chat segment with Catherine Behrendt & Stephanie Webb on WZZM13. Doing that now for almost 3 years, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know some of the behind the scenes staff at WZZM.
Eddie Rucker is one of those people! Eddie is a producer for Take Five & Company and a little over a month ago I noticed and said to her; “Eddie, it looks like you are losing some weight.” She kind of played it down but now I really know whats going on! She has been transforming her body with Zumba and Running. Why? I learned all about it this morning; she is gearing up to run her first marathon ever. May 12th, Eddie will be running in the Grand Rapids 5th/3rd River Bank Run, her first marathon ever. If you have plans to try your hand at it or should I say your feet you better start training your body for endurance now!
Over the past 3 decades, the River Bank Run has become a big event for Grand Rapids with runners from all over the world participating. Close to 21,000 people will participate in the event this year, by either running the 25k, 10k, or 5k.
Each year a number of WZZM 13 employees get involved. This year Take Five Producer, Eddie Rucker is one of those runners.
Organizers say people like Rucker spend upwards of six months training for the event. Early registration is going on now.
You Go Girl! YOU inspire me:-)
