Giveaway: Michelob Ultra 13.1 Half Marathon

It's been full-throttle catch-up mode for me since getting back from vacation this past Sunday. I have a lot to share about the trip (Adam and I went on a cruise that visited Panama, Colombia, Curacao, Aruba, and Bonaire). But, we'll get to those details when time permits more fully.

In the meantime, let's talk about some spring races. I've run the 13.1 Chicago Half Marathon the last two years (check out my recaps from 2012 and 2013).

  2. I would love to run a race in Chicago, but I think a trip of that distance isn't in the cards for me any time soon. (Although, I just heard that Newsies is going to be there when my husband comes home. I'm trying to convince him that it should be our post-deployment vacation!)
