Andrea Dahline, Martha Soraruf

Team Hometown member Andrea Dahline, her friend Helen Lachowicz, and Hometown’s cardio drumming queen Martha Soraruf headed to the Zoo-De-Mack this past weekend for a glorious 51 mile ride.

Andrea Dahline, Martha Soraruf

The Zoo-De-Mack is not a race, but a gathering of approximately 4,000 outdoor enthusiasts who want to enjoy a little physical exercise together in one of the most beautiful areas in the state of Michigan. This was the 30th year for the event.

From Andrea:“Helen Lachowicz and I have been training with Martha for over 8 months, and we really owe it to her and all the cardio drumming and cross training with weights that allowed us to be able to accomplish the 51 miles with all the hills as well! Our legs and hearts were STRONG. Of course the awesome JAMIS bikes helped too!”

Great job, ladies!
