Chi Town 10K 2016 Recap

Last Saturday was the Chi Town Half Marathon & 10K at Montrose Harbor. I ran the 10K. Well, more like skated! 20 degree temps, sloppy and icy trails, and gusty winds are not my ideal running conditions, but it's also no excuse in my book not to run. How silly was I to think that winter running was possibly over for Chicago in April. The day before the race, parts of Northern Illinois dealt with a variety of weather conditions. Rain, brief but heavy snow showers, cold and ice. Chicago got hit pretty hard with the brief intense snow showers making Saturday's course conditions very hazardous.

Bunny Rock 5K 2016 Recap

Last weekend I enjoyed an awesome 3 mile run along Chicago's lakefront at Montrose Harbor at the Bunny Rock 5K. It was a really great race for me. I accomplished a few goals that I have been working on since last year - actually for a couple of years if I wanted to include the year that I first started running, even though I wasn't doing it consistently because of my weight.
