I was delighted when the folks at the Chicago Half Marathon reached out to offer me a complimentary entry to their race, as well as one to give away. I registered for the race back when it was cold and snowy and I skipped a workout to register for spring and fall races — giving my credit card a workout instead. That means I have TWO entries to give away!
I have actually never done this race before, but have heard only good things from friends who have participated. My team participated in Chicago 13.1, organized by the same company, and I have nothing but good things to say about that event.
I’m gunning for a half marathon PR at this race, and I’ll be in good company! Many of our Team Challenge alumni are racing, and we’ll have a tent in the start/finish area. I’m really looking forward to racing with them! Usually I’m on the sidelines, cheering and keeping everyone safe and happy. It’ll be so much fun to suit up in my singlet and race alongside my team.
For your chance to win an entry, comment below with your reason for wanting to race on September 8! Contest will close on Monday, July 29 at 7:00 pm CST.
