Today is the first day of Spring!  I am sick and tired of the winter here in Chicago.  Let’s hope we don’t get any more snow because I don’t want to see it again this year.

1. I entered the Chicago Marathon registration lottery.  Cross your fingers I get picked.  If I don’t get picked, I won’t be upset about it.  I’ve ran this race 3 times but not enough for a guaranteed entry and I definitely do not have a qualifying time (3:15 for men and 3:45 for women).  I don’t want to run for a charity.  Why?  I guess I don’t feel very strongly about running it this year or I would have signed up to run for a charity.  In the past I’ve ran for the Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization and the American Cancer Society.  Well, if I don’t run the marathon then for sure I will be spectating.  It is so much fun being a spectator.

Chicago Marathon-Pilsen Style

2. The new date for the ZOOMA Chicago race is Saturday, August 2.  Oh and there is also a new location for this race.  Make sure to register and use discount code CAMB8 for a 10% discount on either the half marathon or the 10K.  Come run with me and the other 14 ambassadors for what promises to be a fun and exciting race!!

3. I am a member of Team Tough Chik and was recently featured on their blog.  Pretty cool huh?

  1. I’m thinking I really want to do Chicago someday too. This year I’m running in Detroit, but maybe next year. Training for a marathon in the Chicago heat though scares me!

Thank you for your comment!
