I happened to be in Chicago this past week for a conference and in my search for races happened to find that Lincoln Park was holding their annual 8K/5K Bastille Day run on Thursday evening after my conference sessions were over. It presented a unique opportunity to get in a mid-week race, which definitely helps in the quest for 100. I've resigned myself more to the fact that road races would have to be a bigger portion of the goal than I first had hoped, simply based on availability.

I had no idea what to expect, especially from a race scheduled for a Thursday evening. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that a city like Chicago was still able to hold a race with over 2,000 participants, even on a night when the Taste of Chicago was taking place, and both the Cubs and White Sox had home games...not to mention everything else that goes on in the city.

I'll also say that I've always been a big fan of the city of Chicago and each time I'm there I'm reminded how impressive it is. This run in particular reminded me of the year I spent living in Evanston and would go for runs along Lake Michigan. For me there have been few places I've run (thus far) that can rival the views you get from a run like this. First, you have the beauty of the lake and it's shoreline. Second, while running south you get to see the picturesque skyline of the city of Chicago. Finally, for this run in particular, the rest of the route wound you through Lincoln Park itself where you enjoyed the park system, neighborhood, and marina; Not bad for a 5-mile run. Joining me for the race were my friends Dan, Erin, and Jon, and we all agreed that we were pleasantly surprised by the event, and each had our own individual stories to tell based on where our paces put us in the pack.

So race 11 is now in the books with 89 to go.
