|A foolish fool before 2013's Muddy Monk Frozen Five|
I was just taking a look at the viewing statistics for this blog and noticed that the story about Chicagoland's First Annual February Fool's Goal Half Marathon/Debacle has gotten a big jump in views lately. So I decided to do a little research and see if this epically foolish adventure would be possible to duplicate in 2014.
As it turns out, things are shaping up quite nicely.
Carpe Diem Races and the Channahon Park District are keeping it old school and sticking with their schedules from last year. Check out the current schedules for these guys on 2/9/2014:
Cupid's Love Dash 5K at 8:20am
Channahon Frosty 5 Mile at 1pm
So, Muddy Monk, now we're just waiting on you to schedule the Frozen Five Mile. According to your website, you've already got it set for February, but are just waiting to nail down the exact date/time.
Might I suggest February 9th at 10am? Pretty please.
If you do settle on that date/time, I know at least three people foolish enough to tackle three races in three cities in one day in the middle of February (and they'll all be so glad to get the race sweatshirt and the free beer at the finish line). Whaddaya say?
