2016 Chicago Races

F3 Running Half Marathon

I CANNOT believe it’s already race season again, but I’m secretly (or not so secretly) very excited about it! Yes, the below list of races look terrifyingly long and hard, but I felt like SUCH a bum this winter. Race season means a few things that I get happy about:

  • it’s getting warmer outside
  • it’s getting brighter earlier
  • it’s hopefully going to stop snowing ASAP
  • it’s a lot easier to force myself to workout in the AM when I know I can enjoy the outdoors after work
  • it’s gear season – so lots of cool new shirts & race gear to rock

The 2016 list of races is a big one, I’m not the most avid running fan, and my friends and I participate in triathlons for a reason, so I’m happy to see how diverse this year’s runs and races became for me!
