Run With Jess is one of the few blogs that I follow and that is how I came across this free giveaway contest. I can speak personally that Jess herself is an outstanding & phenomenal person. Everything about her is wonderful!! She posted about this giveaway & I glanced at it meaning to enter, but then time slipped away & I almost forgot about it. When I checked in last night I had just a few hours left to enter & after weighing the pros (too many to list) & cons (ok that list is always short!) I decided to enter & let "fate" decide if I'd be doing this race or not. The thought of it really excited me because I realized that I've never run a race in Chicago. Like not even close. So why not try?!?!
Well, lo & behold, I WON!!!! I'm so excited & I'm really, really looking forward to this race. I don't plan to make this a goal race. I'm already in 13.1 shape & there's too many other factors to try & turn it into a PR or anything. I'm looking forward to a fun race to just go & enjoy the experience.
If you are interested in registering for this race you can find the details at their home page HERE. Hurry, the price increases on 12/31. Maybe I'll see you there!!
