By now it should come as no surprise that I love half marathons,
even when they don't love me back.
Sharing the half marathon love today by giving away an entry to the Chicago Half Marathon on Sunday September 8th to one lucky Chicago Runner Girl reader.
This half starts in Jackson Park, right around the corner from the Museum of Science & Industry, before heading onto LSD. The course provides some of the most breathtaking views you'll ever have of beautiful Chitown as you are heading north on LSD into the skyline. LSD is closed entirely to the runners, and as you head back south you see all the runners who started after you flooding the opposite side of the road as the air is filled with cheers and footsteps from the other 10,000+ runners hitting the streets that day.
It's pretty dang neat.
