Giveaway: Chicago F^3 Lake Half Marathon

One of the best ways to stay motivated as a runner is having a race firmly planted on your calendar. This especially holds true over the winter months. As soon as I finished my last race, I realized my upcoming calendar was oddly empty of running events. For a variety of reasons, I've tried to avoid "filling the weekends", but it quickly became obvious that I needed a new goal to cling to. My running shoes (and waistline) were depending on it.

Thus, the F^3 Lake Half Marathon, presented by REM-Fit appeared on my radar.

The timing was just right, and it came well-recommended by a friend in Chicago. Now you might question my idea of "timing"... January 24 in Chicago? Mid-winter in the Windy City?  13.1 miles of snow and cold?  To me, that sounds like the perfect challenge to keep my booty moving thru the holidays and well into the New Year!  (If you're not up to 13.1 yet, there is also a 5K option.)

If you're not sold on the challenge, how about the perks!? Check out what's included in your entry...
  • Beanie Hat with pom
  • Tech Gloves (my personal favorite!)
  • Finisher's Medal with built-in bottle opener
  • Free Photo Downloads
  • Pre and Post-Party at the Union Club inside Soldier Field.
  • First Pint of Beer courtesy of Goose Island Brewing Co.
  • Hot Cocoa and other treats provided by sponsors
But most importantly, the bragging rights that come with running in the dead of winter along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. 
Instant Bada$$ Runner.
