Chicago Marathon Training: Week 1.2 Day 3.2

7 Comments

Today was 5 Miles Easy and I got to get them done at our company’s monthly event of running around the lake by our office building. They set up the event with a marked 3K and 5K courses, but it’s not timed and you can show up and run as much or as little as you want. They provide water and various swag items like lanyards (for our ID badges), hair ties and such.

It was a scorching 82 degrees and very humid. I melted in the sun. Afterward I grabbed another water and the volunteers said I ran the furthest of the attendees today and they gave me an impromptu prize of a car sun shade. I love me some free swag!

I’m so happy our company implemented this program. It is definitely a benefit to be able to get out and get my run done early.
