So we stayed up a little too late last night watching the Blackhawks and the Ducks in game 5. Nothing gets my heart racing like playoff hockey. Toews with 2 goals in 1:12?!? The Hawks are down 3-2 in the series. Wednesday night's game is here in Chicago so I'm hoping we go to game 7!
In running news...
I am officially signed up for my next marathon: Rock N Roll DC
This race is March 12, 2016 and it is on my birthday! I cannot wait to start off my 29th year by finishing another marathon.
I have not been to Washington DC before, and I looking forward to getting a grand tour on my own two feet.
I also have my eye on a fall marathon. My two options are:
1. Fox Valley Marathon. This is located in beautiful St. Charles, IL in September. The course runs a long the Fox River. The course brings you through Batavia, Aurora, and Geneva. St. Charles has one of the best downtown areas and would have great options for a post race meal!
2. Naperville Marathon. This race located in Naperville, IL is run in early November. What I love about Naperville is that it offers a great downtown, beautiful homes in the neighborhood, and a great forest preserve, all of which you get to run through.
Or possibly both. Most likely both. Especially with this Fall Distance Challenge. I am all about an extra medal.
I am hoping to find some fun half marathons to complete as well. I am trying to talk some friends (cough, cough) into running a half (or two) with me!
Any locals ever run either the Fox Valley or Naperville marathons? What did you think?
Have you run a RNR race before?
Would you do anything for an extra medal?
