This is one of my favorite races. It's not the best course out there, but the overall race is so much fun. Even last year when I was injured and couldn't run I signed up to volunteer so I could be there to hang out with everyone. It's always the first Saturday in November and … Continue reading Tyranena

In those 11 months we lost, gained, lost and gained runners and somehow ended up with 12 runners at the start … Continue reading Ragnar Chicago 2013
