In 2007, a friend asked me if I was interested in running a half marathon. I thought about it and said sure, why not? Not knowing this was going to be the first of many. 🙂
But any whoo, during the training, she came across the Park Forest Scenic 10 mile and 5K race that fit right into our training schedule. I finished my run in 1:59:22. And here is the medal that I got.
I don’t think this race exists anymore. Sad because it was a really nice route. The run took you through a forest preserve and parts of Park Forest. I did find that 2007 was the last year they did the 10 miler. The next couple of years it was a 5 mile race and it looks like no more.
HA! See what I did there? I think this is the first time I use the name of the blog as the name of a post. Cheesy? Of course.
Well anyway, I finally signed up for some races for 2011. I have a cold right now so no running. Hopefully in a week, I will finally start running a mile or two here and there.
I know you are on the edge of your seat to see what races I’m planning to do:
May 7 – Cinco De Miler – registered
May 28 – Soldier Field 10 Mile – registered
August 14 – Chicago Rock N Roll Half Marathon – need to register on Feb. 28
October 15 – Pumpkins In the Park 5K – not open
October 29 – Carrera De Los Muertos 5K – not open
November 5 – Hot Chocolate 5K – registered
I feel like I need to add a few 5K here and there. But really, I need to start running. Hopefully once I feel better and the weather stays above freezing, I will start. Really. I promise.
