Race to Wrigley 2012

Happy Friday everyone!  

Registration for the Race to Wrigley opened up today.  I signed up as soon as I saw it!  I've only run it once before, and that was back in 2008...I think!

It's a super cool race.  5k and you end the race running through the corridors of Wrigley and end up under the marquee.

They're capping the race at 10,000 runners and I suggest registering early because this race fills up quick!

They've also added a fundraising aspect to it to benefit Children's Memorial Hospital. 

I'm going to try and raise as much money as I can because I have a special place in my heart for Children's hospitals.  For those of you who don't know, my little guy was in the ICU for 5 days last October for pneumonia.  Those 5 days were horrible for us, but there was an amazing staff that took care of him and us.  I am forever grateful to them.
I consider ourselves lucky, he was only hospitalized for a short time.  There are so many little ones out there that spend weeks and months in the hospital.  It breaks my heart, but we can do something to help them!
