2013 had a lot to live up to after how amazing 2012 had been, both personally and in terms of running. Last year, I completed two half marathons, two 10 mile races, and a couple 5Ks, all while planning our wedding. Mark and I got married on October 13th and then spent two amazing weeks in Switzerland and Italy. Needless to say, I was curious what was going to take up my time this year. I wanted to set a long term goal, and then I found out the 2013 marathon was going to be on our 1 year wedding anniversary. Why not make October 13 a big day for the second year in a row?
I have lived in Lincoln Park since moving to Chicago 6 years ago, and one of my favorite places is the Zoo. It provides amazing culture and entertainment for our community and I feel honored to run in support of it. Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $1,000 that will help support the Zoo animals and organization as a whole.
