See more of our race!
This is one of my favorite races!
I went to the expo Saturday morning. Due to another event taking place at McCormick Place, I was told to take public transportation. I just went early and luckily found parking.
I didn't stay too long as it was a very small expo. There were a few vendors and I bought a few things from Sparkly Soul and Nuun.
Race morning I drove to the train station and took the train to the race. I got there in plenty of time to use the restroom, check in my gear, and meet up with my fellow BibRave Pro friends. Then it was time to run.
The weather was great. It was supposed to rain by luckily it didn't. I wore shorts, compression socks, a long sleeve top, and my BibRave shirt. Yes, I did get hot. I also did get cold a few times probably from the sweat.
I took my time because my goal was to have fun and to finish under an hour. That is exactly what I did!
The course is mainly through downtown and I love it there. I soaked it all in because I don't get a chance to go downtown and it was nice to be able to run there.
The crowd support isn't the same as the Chicago but it was enough to motivate me. I was happy!
Overall, it is an AWESOME race and I would encourage everyone to run this race. I love the distance and the location.
