Live races! Two USA major marathons, https://www.chicagomarathon.com/ (Chicago) and https://www.baa.org/ (Boston), are in the history books. https://www.runcolfax.org/ (Denver's Colfax Marathon) this weekend and https://www.nyrr.org/tcsnycmarathon (NYC Marathon) around the corner. What a great feeling if you are a runner!
I completed my first race in over two years, the https://hotchocolate15k.com/city/denver/ (Denver Hot Chocolate 15k). What a perfect day, great weather, lots of runners, finish line fun, and I exceeded my goal expectation. I'll take this high to the https://www.runcolfax.org/races/half-marathon/ (Colfax Half-Marathon) this Saturday and hope I do ok. And if not, so what, it's a live race. I want to be a part of it no matter how I do.
