Organized by the nonprofit West Michigan Action for Healthy Kids, the Race for Healthy Kids bolsters programs to battle childhood obesity and undernourishment in the community. Starting at 8 a.m., the 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) course guides both serious sprinters and leisurely strollers along an asphalt path shaded by a canopy of hardwoods in kaleidoscopic autumn bloom. Registrants can pick up their race packets on Friday, October 7, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., or on Saturday before the race, when packets will be lobbed from the starting pistol.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Q&A with Ron Pleune, Owner, Artist

What sets your business apart from your competition?

We offer a fun, relaxed atmosphere with patient instruction. Creativity is encouraged if you want to go a different direction with your painting. Our fine art gallery displays the work of only local artists.

What was the inspiration for starting this business?

Engaging art in all aspects in a relaxed, non-intimidating atmosphere. From beginners to the more experienced, I want people to have fun first. Then the things they learn won't feel academic.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Arrive 15 minutes early to find your seat and apron, and be ready to have fun!

What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?

Proud smiles, and people saying, "I never thought I could do this, but I did. It looks great, and I had fun!"

Approaching its 50th anniversary and under new ownership, Cannonsburg Ski and Ride Area livens up winter with plentiful runs that invite skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels to fly safely down the slopes or develop their technique. Roughly 15 miles from Grand Rapids, a network of meticulously designed parks challenges sports folk with half a dozen jumps and more than 50 terrain features, and a newly overhauled snowmaking system keeps the tracks covered in fresh snow from brand-new snow guns along with a brand new ski run.

Guests of all ages can hone their skills under the watchful eyes of instructors before hitting the mountain's 20 runs, which are served by ten lifts, including one magic carpet. After relishing rushes of downhill velocity, visitors can peruse the well-stocked shop or refresh themselves with treats from the Cedar Lounge restaurant.

Short game and putting skills will likely determine golfers' fate at Braeside Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course that bounds over mounds and through 6,638 yards of West Michigan countryside. The pro shop touts the course's par-threes as some of the most difficult in the area, and it's easy to tell why: from the tips, the shortest of the four holes stands at 164 yards, with the other three measure in at 196, 186, and 217 yards. At those distances, even the most accurate golfers can fail to hold the green, leaving a tricky chip and putt in order to get up-and-down for par. Easier scoring opportunities await at the course's par-fives, which long hitters and players with gravity-resistant golf balls can reach in two. With four tee options, the course presents approachable challenges for golfers across the handicap spectrum.
