Motivation Monday: Ready to Rock 'n' Roll



Last week I hinted at finally registering for a race.  I'm starting to see some improvements in my injuries and I'm feeling ready to tackle some distance again.  Here's my fun news!

I won an entry into the 2014 Rock 'n' Roll Chicago 1/2 Marathon from Megan at I Run For Wine!

I hadn't planned on running a 1/2 this spring or summer but free was just too good to pass up.  To make for a fun weekend, my daughter is also going to race.

The promise of bling and music convinced her to run the 5k while I'm out busting my ass over 13.1 hot as Hades July miles :)  The good will be the company before and after the race, but mostly I'm looking forward to using her beer ticket.

This will be my first Rock 'n' Roll race - a bucket list item for me.  I probably wouldn't have chosen Chicago in July, but it works into my schedule and will probably be a good lead-in to the start of marathon training.  

Have you run a Rock 'n' Roll race?
