WESTERN SPRINGS, Ill. -- Flew out to see my parents today, first chance I got I decided to do a 2-mile run in my folks' neighborhood to come full circle.
Running in the 5K race in Western Springs in September really opened things up for me, leading to several 5Ks, a few 10Ks and even a half-marathon in five months. Something to think about for the future.
It was pretty bitterly cold, especially with the wind. My legs were sore the day after the race.
Time: 12:15 p.m.
Temp: 26 degrees
Gear: windbreaker, North Face Ultrawick layer and pants, SST (Blue Chip), hat, AP/D2.
