Chicago Bound!!!!

I have just finished adding the last of "must pack" necessities into my suitcase and we are headed to the airport bound for Chicago!

This will be our third time running the Chicago Marathon and each year has presented a new adventure. I vividly remember the 2015 marathon where I had to pee for the first 16 miles and the 2016 race where I was heavily medicated for a sinus infection! Both events have still been amazing and I'm excited to head back to the windy city to see what 2017 has in store.

I only ran a couple of times this week and I took an extra rest day because I was super tired from a busy week at work. I figure that at this point not a lot I do will enhance my performance, but any extra miles I squeeze in might make me more rest it is!

Don't forget to download the chimarathon app to track us!!!! My bib is 6766 and Matt has 1121!

This is the race shirt!!! 

And here's the bling!!!!!!

I am such a baby and I was super sad to leave Lola. :( I am forever grateful to Monique for taking care of our princess!

Also!!!!!! My LED vest from Nox Gear came!!!!!!!! I can't wait to try it out!

Lastly, check out my new winter swag from Mizuno!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, this is awesome!

So PLEASE wish us luck and Good Luck to all my local friends running the Valley this weekend!!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!!!!!

Happy Running,
Heather :)
