It’s that time of year when your Facebook feed is filled with post race highs {and lows}. If you know someone running the Chicago Marathon on Sunday and would like to track them – you can find all the information you need by clicking HERE.



Chicago may be pancake flat, but that doesn’t mean it makes for an easy race! I’ve run the marathon twice and while I loved the city and the race itself, I struggled with the flats. This is something to consider if you are someone who is thinking forward to 2017 and picking what race you want to try to run a personal best at or snag a BQ. I love hills to a certain extent and my body likes the break I get from a course with rolling hills, so that is what I look at when picking a race. While online articles can do their best to tell you what races are great places to run personal bests, ultimately you have to think about what type of course will be good for YOU to run a personal best.

To those of you running – good luck!! I’ll be cheering for you from Virginia!! xoxo Dorothy
