New Things Wednesday!

First, I feel like I'm really slacking in the running department.  It's got to be the weather. It's also got to be that since I'm not training for a full marathon, I'm running less miles, and I'm not used to that! 

But it's hump day so let's get on with it!

Ok, so I haven't gotten much sleep the last two days...  anyway...

I have a few bits of exciting news!

1. I've decided to join the times and start up a facebook page for my blog. Please like it and share with your friends. :-)

2. I was chosen as an ambassador for the Zooma Chicago half marathon and 10k.  This race is on August 9th and I'm super excited to be a part of it.  I've had friends run it in the past and I've wanted to do it for a few years now.  Be on the lookout for a discount code for this race in the near future!

3. The negative temperatures in Chicago "might" be over soon...  forecasts show it near 50 degrees by next Thursday.  I.Just.Have.No.Words.  It's been too cold for too long.

4. It was my birthday yesterday (Happy Birthday to Me!).  I got a few cool things including two race medal holders (only one was for my birthday) which was long needed as I have been hanging my medals on a metal accordion coat hanger that goes over the door.  Will be happy to use my new ones!  Pictures to come!

Enjoy your hump day everyone!

  1. Happy Birthday! I hope it doesn't rain too much and melt all of the snow and cause floods. I was also thinking about skiing in the 'burbs next weekend. I guess I have bad timing. :)

  2. Happy birthday! Congratulations on being named a ZOOMA Chicago ambassador!!! I am super excited about the forecast for next week, too. Anything over 32 degrees sounds like a dream right about now. I'm going to be ready to go out and hit the beach, LOL. Yay for us all finally being able to run outdoors without dressing up like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!!!

  5. Happy belated birthday! I'm struggling with running in this cold weather too. I can't wait till we have a little longer daylight hours.
