I somehow managed to get three races on my schedule for this summer. Now, running in the summer can be frustrating at best and downright awful at worst, so I have no goals for these races other than to go have fun.
1. Rock N Roll Chicago 10k - After last year's negative experience running the RnR Chicago Half Marathon, I decided I would never do another RnR race. Too much hype, too much money, and not enough bang for the buck. Plus, this one is in July in Chicago and it's like running on the surface of the sun. That being said, when my friend Renee told me she was coming from the Netherlands to run, I couldn't let the opportunity pass by to see her. I'm not in half marathon shape, so I registered for the 10k. If you are going to be in Chicago July 18-19, let me know and we can try to get together! Rumor has it, Meb will be there!!
There you have it...a lesson learned to never say never. Here I went into the summer saying I was taking time off from races and now I'm running three in the next couple months.
Are you racing this summer? Any races on your bucket list?
