 The family and I kicked off another Fit Fathers weekend in our Michigan hometown to participate in the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon (a first for me). Thanks to Automotive Rhythms and Auto Fit by Fit Fathers the drive from Maryland was a comfortable 513-mile experience in the 2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV). Added with BMW’s M Sport package, the AWD SAV handled the Pennsylvania and Ohio turnpikes like a true champion of the road. Empowered with ultra 93 octane, the entire trip was completed on almost a single tank of gas. That’s what we call Efficient Dynamics!

So far I have completed two magnificent race days of preparation in Michigan weather and am looking forward to spending more time with family and friends and making the rounds around town after crossing the finish line.
