Trail Tuesday 7/25

Starved Rock is where I am taking you next. We hiked around Starved Rock park for two days and it was neat to see the different types of trails, especially those with waterfalls at the end. While it was fun to camp at the park, it is a quick day trip from Chicago that I would love to repeat in the future. Stay tuned next week for more pictures (and waterfalls!) from Starved Rock.

Chicago Marathon Training Week 6

Finally a "normal" training week. I almost forgot what one of those feels like! I am still enjoying the McMillan custom plan that I have been following, and while the mileage is still a bit low, the speed workouts and actual long run this week were challenging.

Trail Tuesday 7/18

This week's Trail Tuesday is taking you to the Valley of Fire! It is located about an hour from Las Vegas, and it is well worth the drive. There are several different trails located within the park and what is neat is that they all showcase a unique landscape.

Chicago Marathon Training Week 5

Another week of training completed, although this was hardly a week for running. I was pretty sore and tired after the WFG Xtreme 10 last week, and I was glad for an easy week of running and some rest.

Trail Tuesday 7/11

This week features one of the trails we hiked in Las Vegas in the Red Rock Canyon. I highly recommend this beautiful area. There are a variety of trails for all abilities, and I can't wait to go back and explore some more.
