I have even signed up for the Shamrock Shuffle this weekend! I'm running for the BRC. Scoring for the Shuffle is just like the team scoring for the Chicago Marathon, but our team is stacked with three sub-3 hour marathon runners (including Ken), plus Declan and Lynton who are just a minute or two away from that club. Anyway, only the top four runners' times are counted so my time won't count for anything unless (heaven forbid) two or more runners on the team can't make it. Temps are supposed to soar into the 60s on Sunday so look for a lot of drunk people in Grant Park post-race.
Anyway, long runs are anything over five miles for me right now, and today, I went out for a six miler and ended up running over seven. Took some pics of the ice and snow (what's left of it)! It was a beautiful morning. The more I read about how people hate this winter, the more I love it and want it to stay for a few more weeks. It's beautiful if you just stop take it all in (twss).
