Ohio’s Pace Per Mile Report for Week of March 05, 2012

You can also listen to my report on Pace Per Mile, the 1st Place for Endurance Radio HERE.

This is Sara from wordstorunby.com reporting on the Ohio race scene for Pace Per Mile Radio. I was hoping to bring you a live report from the Arnold Sports Festival this past weekend, but it was extremely crowded and cell and internet reception was less than ideal inside the Convention Center. However, the sights and sounds were electrifying as Columbus hosted over 18,000 athletes and 175,000 fitness enthusiasts. Stay tuned to my blog for a recap of my weekend. While I have a few days to recover from the Arnold, it won’t be long until another great event comes to Columbus.
Me and Figure Competitor, Kristina Grogan
