I Found My Half

As any of my long term followers know I've been planning on running a half marathon. The Hot Chocolate 15K was a good test - I think I can, I think I can, I did it!!!

After quite a bit of consulting calendars (husbands, schools, mine) I am committing to the 13.1 mile Monster Dash in October. I was hoping for an earlier race as I'd love to get it done, but school, vacation and the reality of Chicago weather got in the way. Also, while the course map may change, last year was pretty much the same as the Hot Chocolate just a little further so I am already pretty confident I can do it - I mean it's only 4 more miles from what I did.

I figure if I start working out again once school starts, and then running once it warms up, I'll be fine for October, who's with me?


  1. Sounds awesome! You can totally do it. I've never run the Monster Dash but I've heard great things!

  2. I'm excited about it. It sounds like a fun race. I think the fact that some people will be running in costumes (not me) will help keep me entertained for all those miles
