What are your favorite things about the Club? There is something for everyone on the club. Whether you are looking to snag a walk-on spot on the varsity team or looking for a fun group to run with a few times a week, there are people who share the same goals as you. If you're on the fence about joining, come out for a practice and see for yourself! Anything else you'd like everyone to know? Before racing in the heat, be sure to drink lots of fluids! You do NOT want to learn the hard way.
Jacob Rutkowski Position: Vice President of Administration Year: Senior Major: Computer Science Minor: Information and Communication Technology and Development Hometown: Plainfield, IL Favorite Event/Distance: 400m Hurdles What are your favorite things about the Club? My favorite thing about the club has to be the people. Even when we aren't running or doing a workout, some of my fondest memories from college so far has been adventures I've gone on with people that I met through the club. It was hard for me to find my place at the university when I came to MSU as an out of state student who didn't know very many people, but I'm glad the club provided a welcoming environment for me to thrive in. Anything else you'd like everyone to know? My lock for this year's NFL season is Detroit Lions u9.5 wins. I expect a 10% finder's fee from anyone that takes this advice.
Matthew Singer Position:Vice President of Operations Year:Junior Major: Electrical Engineering Junior Hometown: Macomb, MI Favorite Event/Distance: 400m Hurdles and relays What are your favorite things about the Club? You might come for the running but you will stay for the people. MSURC has some of the most dedicated, kind, and funny members I have ever met. It's hard to beat the feeling of pounding out a workout with the team, hyping each other up before a big race, or laughing at the team dinners. Anything else you'd like everyone to know? Grant + Matthew in Ultimate frisbee is a more elite combo than Kobe + Shaq or Jordan + Pippen
Sam Siminski Position:Treasurer Year: Senior Major: Political Science Minor: Spanish Hometown: Grand Rapids, MI Favorite Event/Distance: 5K What are your favorite things about the Club? My favorite things about the club are the memories we make! This especially applies to travel meets. I love the road trips, the meals, the hotel stays, and the races themselves. All of these things create a sense of togetherness that I hope everyone gets to experience! I love that I still get to be part of a team in college, as I am not fast enough for the MSU Cross Country team, no matter what my dad might tell you. Run Club is a great place to share some laughs, make some memories, and go on runs from time to time. Anything else you'd like everyone to know? First, Joan Rivers is the greatest comedian of all time. Second, I am looking forward to another term as your Treasurer this year and I am excited to meet every new member of the club! Reach out if you ever want to chat - it doesn't have to be about running! I hope you know that. Add me on bereal @samelsimski. Go Green! Club or Die!
Mayzie Dingman Position:Social Event Coordinator Year:Junior Major:Psychology and Criminal Justice Minor:Law, Justice and Public Policy Hometown: Leland, MI Favorite Event/Distance: 5k What are your favorite things about the Club? My favorite aspect of the club is the memories made on and off of the course. Whether it be from traveling to new meets and experiencing new courses to attending a wide array of social events, there are countless opportunities to create unforgettable memories with MSURC. Some of my favorites include Nats in Virginia, numerous other travel meets, fall festivities, and even as simple as the "intellectual" conversations had while embarking on our runs at practice. If you are hesitant about joining I highly recommend coming out to a practice at the holy steps of IM West to give us a shot, you won't regret it! As always club or die! Anything else you'd like everyone to know? Someone called you an owl today

What are your favorite things about the Club? My favorite part of the club is that it’s a great way to explore MSU and meet new people. I didn’t know there were cows on campus until going down farm lane and adventuring into the agricultural part of campus. Coming on runs at practice is a great way to go out and explore the area and get comfortable with your new home away from home. Plus of course you get to do that with all the new people you meet and get to know through all the social events, travel meets, and other activities the club plans. Anything else you'd like everyone to know? The Michigan left is the worst thing ever created. Why can’t I just turn left at the light.

What are your favorite things about the Club? I really enjoy being in the club for the social aspect. It is really fun to see the diverse group people that run club brings out. There are people from all across the country and world (Rip Achille). I also think it is really cool that everyone trains for different reasons, whether someone’s out there every trying to run Varsity or just out a few times a month to stay in shape or even just a social member, it is awesome that everyone is accepted no matter their personal goals. Anything else you'd like everyone to know? If you are just sightly interested in joining run club do it. I was on the fence about joining last year, and it has been one of my best decisions. Fun fact: I hate Chicago Sports

I don't know what it is about running, but it truly brings together some of the best human beings!
