Nike+ Chiberia Challenge - Join My Team and Let's Win



You guys, it's cold outside. I know. And when it's cold outside it's harder to get motivated to run.

And Nike knows this too.

So they've created a thing called the Nike+ Chiberia Challenge. Go check it out.

5 teams of runners will be competing against winter (and against each other) to run the farthest the fastest (fastest in terms of days, not speed of running).

It's a pretty sweet challenge.

And I'm captaining one of the five teams. Other teams are captained by the likes of Cindy Kuzma, Runner's World contributing editor and nicest person ever and Maggie Wolff, most popular Chicago running blogger and second nicest person ever. But, really, who cares about them?? You only care about winning this thing right?

So, go check out the info about the challenge, read about the other (lesser) teams and then go join my team at the link below and let's win this thing:

Chicagoland's First Annual February Fool's Goal Half Marathon/Debacle Completed!

If you were outside running yesterday, or even if you were just sitting inside looking out the window, you are probably aware that yesterday was a terrible weather day. All day. The temperature stayed between 34 and 40 with freezing rain falling on and off throughout the day. But that didn't stop a trio of foolish runners from Chicago from completing the inaugural running of Chicago's newest half marathon: Chicagoland's First Annual February Fool's Goal Half Marathon/Debacle 

Sunday double-header!

After the Run to Remember yesterday, today was a double-header, starting off with the 4-mile C4 Miles at 8 this morning in front of Peggy Notebaert and wrapping up with the 5-mile Cinco de Miler at 9:30 in Montrose Harbor. I was a little nervous about being able to make it to both, but I ended up with time to spare (thanks to the help of a cab that dropped me off at the packed turn-off to Montrose Harbor). Biking from the first race to the second would have been ideal... but I don't have a bike. And I wasn't about to run the three miles between the races carrying my gear check bag. Turn-off at Montrose Harbor Anyway, my complete reviews of both races are up on Newcity.com: C4 Miles review Cinco de Miler review The races really couldn't have been more different: Starting line at Cinco de Miler C4 Miles was a quiet, relatively casual event, with probably around 350 participants (half running/half walking) and no pace groups. Since runners quickly go
