For the Sporty Dad

This weekend in Chicago is the Humana Rock and Roll Marathon Series. There will be a 5K on Saturday and a 10K and a half marathon to run on Saturday. I wanted to run the half marathon for my birthday a few years back but due to timing and budget, I was not able to.

This year i will be running the half marathon and will probably go live from the event. Stay tuned and I will write about the event after it happens….and hopefully survive the event.
