I sat down for a minute, and realized there is a wealth of knowledge i should be sharing on the blog that i haven't been.  Housekeeping time for the blog!  SO, if your race schedule isn't packed this summer, get ready for it to be!

Move for the Kids 5k - May 19th
This is a super cute 5k down by soldier field, and its for a great cause!  It's benefiting the Children's hospital of Chicago.  And, it's a run/walk, so if you are a new to the running scene, it isn't a high pressure event!  Please use readM4TK when you register to save $4 - because saving money is cool.  So they tell me.

Zooma Women's Half Marathon & 10k

Its August 10th!  I am doing the half marathon.  As an ambassador, waffles and I got huge care package of runner goodies that i want to share with you.  So come run with me sometime!  (And hurry.  Matt is eating all the protein bars...)(and Waffles is eating the hat.....)

There is still time to enter the sweepstakes - HERE
This baby is a free weekend in the city with a shopping spree.  Do it now.  Don't pass go.  Don't collect  $200.  Just go win this.

Or, if you aren't the lucky type, sign up here and use the discount CHIAMB5 to save cash monies.

Zooma kick off with CARA
4/29 at 6pm Universal Sole East Lakeshore.  CARA will be there talking about their Half Marathon training program.  You don't have to be registered, but you are able to register there if you like - I have always enjoyed the CARA training programs.  And I will have just run a marathon, so you can sit back and watch me waddle through the fun run and have a couple of laughs.

Run for Boston 5k

The Chicago Running Bloggers and the Muddy Monk have teamed up to create a 5k with all the proceeds going towards the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, specifically a charity that works with amputees.  Its June 15th (a Saturday) and i better see you there!  And, if running isn't your thing, or you are injured, or just lazy like me, volunteer!  Maggie, the genius behind Mag Mile Runner is creating a volunteer sign up sheet.  Once i know for sure its finalized, i will post a link for volunteer sign up somewhere noticeable on the blog.

Until then, go sign up for the race!  We even have a virtual race for those who aren't in the Chicagoland area.  Check out all the info HERE.

Team Run for HD

And, last but not least, Team Run for HD is back in action!  We are running the Chicago Half Marathon & 5k again this September.  I wont overwhelm you with threats to join us right now (those will come later), but just know its on the horizon.  Also, that means PARTY TENT IN CHARITY VILLAGE!  You can always click the Team Run icon to the left for more information.  Or just ask me.

Whew!  That was a lot.  I need a drink.  Too bad its 8am.


  1. Thanks for the updates! I've never signed up for a race oddly enough. Although I do check CARA's website to see if there is a race I need to be careful about running through.

    And that is a lot of Cytomax!! Closest thing I take to a drink is Ovaltine or Gatorade! haha

    Keep up the great posts

  2. Kind of wish I could run and lived closer....some fun stuff is in store for you!

  3. Love the pic of Waffles eating the hat! Mmmmm, hat!

  4. All of those races sound like fun! It looks like you got lots of yummy treats from Zooma. I hope that Matt saves some protein bars!

  5. There was a heartbreaking story on the latest This American Life that ended up being about someone with HD. I've never run a race for charity but you might be able to convince me to join Team Run for HD for this year's Chicago Half Marathon.

  6. Ahh! I miss the ZOOMA swag! I lived on that Muscle Milk for months! :) So glad you will be representing!

  7. OOH share the volunteer sheet, I will share it too

  8. The "genius" behind Mag Mile Runner? Are you referring to all of my cat pictures and boring weekly training posts? Ummmmm ...
