A Marathon in Antarctica? Seriously….

3 Apr

Just when I am really impressed with myself for signing up for the Chicago Marathon, I read a story about a woman who ran a marathon in Antarctica.  This company is actually very cool.  They plan marathons all over the world so that people who love to run and travel can do both at the same time.  I now have a new goal.  What about a marathon on the Great Wall of China or running while seeing the big five in South Africa?  These races are definitely going on my bucket list.

Rock and Roll USA Half Marathon

19 Mar

Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon

Tribulation:  I ran the Rock n’ Roll USA half marathon on St. Patrick’s Day this year.  I have actually ran this race three years in a row now, but this was my worst time ever for a half.  What is weird is that I trained for this half marathon in Colorado while studying for the bar exam.  Not only should the altitude have made this run easy, the fact that I actually trained for a half should have made a difference.  I should have ran my best time yet.  When I could feel I was going to bomb this half, I decided to take it easy and enjoy the run.  There was a band almost every two miles.  So many people came out to watch and join in the festivities.  It was a great time.  I will definitely be running this again next year.  It is my goal to beat not only this horrible time, but my personal best for a half.
