    You know, it was actually a really pretty park!  The eagles were awesome.  And hey, Starbucks wasn't too far away either.  I sat and drank a beer at sunset and looked out at the lake.

     

    Really though, the company was the best part.  Smile

    It certainly was! There's no way I could have done it on my own!

        Oh, I like this one! it's close, it's on my birthday, and it wouldn't be only twenty degrees overnight! (plus, based on last year's results I could have been the individual female winner!)

         

        EDIT: My daughter and I just signed up!

         

        You guys doing as individuals or the 2 person relay?

         

        BTW Runny_babbit, where are you from to call this 1 close?

          We're signing up as individuals. I live in the south suburbs of Chicago. Valpo is only about an hour away, so pretty close relatively speaking.

                      --  I do love 24 hour races.  Well, at least I think I do since I plan to sign up for several of em this year!   --- My 2013 calendar is pretty slap full, but maybe I consider this for 2014?  In a nutshell, what is the best part of this race?  (I can see one great thing is that alot of familiar RW and RA faces will be in attendance :-) .  Someone talk me into looking at Equalizer for 2014.... it won't take much arm-twisting...

                      The Plan (big parts)→  /// April:  Hampton, VA 24 Hour Run for Cancer  ///   May:  3 Days at the Fair (12 Hour)  ///  Nov:  New York Marathon (Staying at the Waldorf Astoria, its a "Bucket List" thing.  Can someone loan me some Zamunda money to help pay for it?)   ∞

                        Obviously, the best part last year was the RW/RA crew!

                        Beyond that, I would say what I liked best was that the course was long enough to keep from being too mind-numbingly boring (with the lighted bridge, eagle sightings, and lots of people out strolling to help break up monotony), but still short enough that you passed the aid area every two miles. Heated bathrooms are also a nice plus in late October. And the volunteers were always smiling, despite spending hours standing around in the cold (it dropped below freezing that night).
