Adventure Running At It's Best

I just returned from one of my top five running races EVER. We took our runners from Chicago Endurance Sports to Cabo San Lucas for the Half Marathon and it was a very fun weekend of events. As you can see from the pictures, I ran and had fun along the way making sure all our CESers got in safely.

My husband John and I swam with the dolphins! This will go down as one of my favorite life moments for a few reasons...One, because I got to watch my husband and friends smile like they were kids again (me too:) And B, because we were up close and personal with "Maya" a rescue dolphin who had one eye and a heart the size of the Pacific Ocean. What a weekend...I think I need a little more time to digest to fully explain just how much fun I had.

Happy Trails,

Happy New Year

Here's to a year full of happy miles and plenty of smiles. I am looking forward to getting back on the trails this Spring and perhaps even tackling another Ultra Marathon or two. But before I can dream about what Spring and Summer will bring, I have to focus on the next two months of adventures.

Next weekend I am running the 15th Anniversary Disney Marathon with my brother. He's trained hard and it will be his first so it should be a fun journey. The following weekend our team from Chicago Endurance Sports is running the Cabo San Lucas Half Marathon. I know, it is a tough job but someone has to do it:) Then at the end of February John and I are staff and crew for the Antarctica Marathon Expedition. The trip down there is adventure enough! I put together a slide show from last year's race so you can see how hard the course is.

I am grateful to have so many adventures to conquer this season. It's what keeps life interesting for me!

Here's to your next adventure. Please share with us what or where you are going...
