6 Drumsticks Series: Run #1

Date: Tuesday, October 16
Location: Goose Island Wrigleyville
Distance: 3 miles
Time: 30 minutes

Another season of CARA fun runs!  Over the summer for the Summer Six, I started off pretty well by recording…  one of the runs.  Out of six.  I promise to do better.

Met up at Goose Island in Wrigleyville tonight.  At first I was concerned that I was under dressed, I just had a try-tech t and shorts, but it was perfect.  We ran Addison to the Lake, then north on the path a bit, and back to the bar. I hadn’t been on the Lake Front since the Beer and Burgers 5k, have been treadmill or river running a lot recently, so it was nice to be back out there tonight.  Also, need to look for nighttime running gear, especially knuckle lights or a headlamp.  It was DARK.  And it will only get darker.

No big raffle scores tonight, but reconnected with a few fun running friends that I met over the summer, and got to meet some new folks as well.  Once again I am so happy to be in a city with such strong support for runners.  Thanks CARA!

Planning on about 30 minutes on the treadmill tomorrow, DOR Thursday, possibly yoga on Friday, then I have a 5k walk for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (click to donate!) on Saturday, followed by the FLWRaces 10k on Sunday.  Busy busy!
