Rex and I are committed to a race!

And what a race! It's the Chicagoland Half Marathon!!! Can I use more exclamation points? YES!!!!!!

So what's this race about? Raising funds for cancer research, for one. The link for the site is here. There are several things about this race that have me excited:
  • Chicago is an awesome city to visit.
  • The timing is great - May 20th is perfect since we have time to get in shape and the weather will be good.
  • The race course will be flat!!!
I really liked the Georgia Half Marathon, but honestly it was really too hilly for a first long race. I'd like a chance to try a flatter course, and then I can go back to that race. It's well organized and fun to run. It's just something I'd like to try it again next year.

This means the Warrior Dash is out too, but that's okay. I don't want to over do that race. Rex and I are going to have a lot of fun, the money goes towards a great cause, and it'll be a chance to get out of Atlanta for a long weekend.

My husband and I did the Rock-n-Roll Half in Chicago last August. It was amazing! Beautiful weather, and running through it is the best way to see a city IMO!
