Chicago Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon

Year 5! I can’t believe I have been running this race for the past 5 years! I have made a personal vow to run it every year.

This year just Morgan and my twin came, but we still had a wonderful time! My sister is getting into running, and has actually signed up to run the half with me in 2014!

On Saturday we just walked around the city because it was such a beautiful day! We of course hit up the expo 🙂



After the expo we went back to our hotel room to get ready for dinner. We went to the Melting Pot.  We love the Melting Pot!!


(My wonderful twin, Kyla, and I)


(So good!)

The next morning we got up early and walked to the race.  I love the morning of the race because the city is full of runners and it has such a great energy! I did not get any pictures this year of the year because my sister and Morgan slacked a little on that… The only picture is from Marathon Foto, hence the copyright!

The race went great, and like every race, I had a great run!  The finish line was my favorite part because my sister and Morgan were there, and the song “Wild Ones” was blasting.  My sister HATES that song, so it was great to hear it as I ran across the finish line.  I had a good laugh, my sister not so much… 🙂

Can’t wait for race #6!
