Chicago here I come

February 1, 2011

Well not for another 9 months or so, but it's official.  This morning I signed Chelsea and I up for the Chicago Marathon.  We are both so excited to be doing this with Jill and Jennifer!  Whoo hoo!


So as we count down to Chicago I will keep running and we will have several races in between to help train and prepare us for the big day. And while I don't plan to run 100 miles every month, it was a goal I challenged myself to reach for January.  I definitely learned that when nearing a goal like that it is not wise to go out for drinks with friends the night before you plan a long run, because that said run is not going to happen!  Lesson learned...

That left me with two days in a row to finish up 16 miles.  I ran 11 the first day and thought 5 would be no big deal the next day.  I was wrong - I think I would have been better off running the full 16 on Sunday because that 5 miles was the hardest 5 miles I've run!

Watching some of the video makes me excited, nervous and leaves me wondering, what the heck did I get myself into...
