I have been putting off starting a blog for sometime...I knew that I have always wanted to have one about running the Chicago Marathon for a few reasons..
1. It helps me to be accountable for getting my runs in and following through...sometimes it is just so easy to hang out on the couch and not go for a run.
2. Chicago is such an amazing marathon...the elites are there, 45,000 people run it...IT IS A BIG DEAL
3. I want to be able to track my runs, see how I am feeling and also share some of my highs and lows...
I am currently in the Half Marathon Clinic at the Running Room (which I cannot sign enough praises about) and will run my first half since 2007...I will run that half on April 11, 2010. I am actually excited for this race as my previous best half was 2:35:00 and that was back in 2003 at the Ottawa Half Marathon...sooo I am hoping that my training has paid off and it will be a personal best! We will see.
Thanks for reading!
