Former road runner (a few marathons).
Current trail runner (a couple 50k's, many trail relays - North Country Trail Relay & Dances with Dirt).
Mostly run at Grand Mere State Park in Stevensville, MI. 900 acres of wooded dunes along Lake Michigan.
Currently direct the Jack Settles Deerfly Stomp, an event to raise support
& awareness for Alzheimer's Association.
We actually rrun through Deerfly infested woods (on purpose) & "catch" deerflies on a Tred-Not Deerfly Patch. The winner of the Stomp is the one who catches the most deerfles.
Donations are then made ($0.25 per bug) to the Alzheimer's Association for each captured fly.
Last years total catch...293 of these winged carnivores.
(This is NOT a "catch & release." :)))
