Detroit Runner Race Reviews

It is a little tougher getting honest reviews about all of these races, especially the smaller ones. It seems like the big sites list the major ones such as the Detroit Free Press Marathon. I found this site and I really like it for EXTREMELY in depth and honest reviews- this man literally reviews everything possible about the races he has run, maps it out takes a zillion pictures. Not all the races are included, but he makes a big effort to get out to a good amount and the reviews are very thorough!

5k Races in Detroit and Michigan

How do you decide on which 5k to run and where you want to run it? When I check online it seems like there 10 races going on in the greater detroit area every Saturday and Sunday, so what is a novice runner like myself to do.

The best resources I have found on the subject is a site called  5k races in michigan that seems great at listing the upcoming races in michigan, while the big sites seem to only list the major runs that are coming up in the future. Even as I write this now they seem to be hitting the majority of races while the big sites like running USA just list the bigger races.

The Modern Podiatrist (Foot and Ankle Specialist Doctor):Today's podiatrist is required to undergo rigorous medical training that licenses them as physicians with equivalent legal standing to the MD and DO degree (These are physician recognized licenses most common only in the USA). Although admittedly the training does differ between the three degrees. The differences are listed below.In Michigan Podiatrists are trained and authorized to perform surgery in the foot and ankle up to the tibial tubercle below the knee.All our podiatrists and foot doctors have undergone rigorous training including a 4 undergraduate college degree, writing the medical school entrance exam (MCAT), followed by a 4 year medical school degree (DPM - Doctor of Podiatric Medicine),Once podiatrists in the USA complete the rigorous 4 year medical school courses, they are required to complete a minimum of 3 years of a surgical and non-surgical residency program. Some podiatrists and foot doctors then choose to go on to further fellowship training specializing in various forms of specialty such as diabetic surgery or reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.The training is not over yet! Each podiatrist must be judged by a governing body where they submit their surgical cases and are reviewed regularly to ensure excellent results. This is a career long evaluation with board qualifications and certifications every few years.So have faith that today's podiatrist is your best choice for your foot and ankle problems!
