When there was still snow on the ground last year and I was less than in shape, I began registering for races scheduled in Fall. Before I knew it I had signed up for 9 weekends of events (7 marathons, 1 half marathon, & 1 50 mile team relay).
|9/6/2015||No Frills Marathon||Minoqua, WI|
|9/12/2015||Tunnel Trails Big Apple Marathon||Elroy, WI|
|9/19/2015||Community First Fox Cities Marathon||Appleton, WI|
|10/4/2015||Lakefront Marathon||Milwuakee, WI|
|10/11/2015||Chicago Marathon||Chicago, WI|
|10/17/2015||DPR Trail Marathon||Libertyville, IL|
|11/1/2015||Milwaukee Running Festival Marathon||Milwuakee, WI|
To be honest I had no idea if this was possible. Thank goodness I was to naive to know how crazy this plan really was. November 1st 2015 I completed my last race the Milwaukee Running Festival Marathon. My favorite part of this crazy journey had to be all the wonderful runners I met. We all line on race morning with different goals, stories, passions, but along the course we become kindred spirits. I will never forget this racing season. I proved to myself and all naysayers that even the wildest of goals are worth pursuing.
The big question now is…WHAT NEXT?
