    The Jingle Bell Run/Walk aka The Trail Run You Didn't Know Chicago Had

    It snowed all night. And it snowed all morning. And, as I write this, it is still snowing. In short, it's pretty snowy out there in Chicago right now. This morning - along with a number of other people who didn't know whether to be excited or concerned about all the snow - I ran the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis.

    And as the title of this blog implies, it was way more than just a typical Chicago road/sidewalk/Lakefront Trail race:

    Doyle's Emerald Necklace Road Race

    Since I'm in Boston this week visiting Brynn I figured we should be hitting up some of the Boston-area races (especially since neither of us is fast enough to run the Boston Marathon). So, in searching for the most convenient race for us to take on this weekend I stumbled upon the Doyle's Emerald Necklace Road Race - a race now in its 18th year and deemed "legendary" by race organizers.

    We got to what we thought was the starting line at Doyle's Cafe - a small pub/cafe in Jamaica Plain - and checked in to get our race bibs. Here we found out a few things: 1. This race is much bigger than we anticipated (aroun…

    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:
