This was my first destination half marathon. I was really looking forward to running the Chicago Half. I signed up months ago and had my trip completely planned out. First, let me talk about packet pickup and the fitness expo. Packet pickup was at the Willis Tower. Enjoyed the locale. Pickup itself was fine, there was a very long line that ran outside and around the building. Thankfully it was a beautiful day out! I was less than impressed with the fitness expo. It was very small and cramped in what felt like a small corner of a giant building. It could have been better. Race was great! Loved the course, great scenery, crowd was awesome. HOWEVER, the race was half a mile short! Why!?!? My watch and those of everybody I talked to had the race at 12.6 miles. Somewhere around mile 9 or 10, somebody messed up. This was the most disappointing part of the race and why I docked Race Production in my review. I would certainly do the race again, but would expect the distance to be accurate, the fitness expo I can overlook, but not distance.

I have ran this race for 3 years in a row. The race takes place right near downtown Dallas. Good views, especially as you run over the bridges crossing the Trinity River. Speaking of bridges, they can be tough, the inclines make it enough of a challenge. Race swag is good, the shirt is one of the few I rotated into my regular clothes (I run so many races, it’s hard to crack the every day wear these days!). Medal is very nice! I would definitely recommend running this race at least once.

This one definitely ate me alive. I didn’t realize when I signed up it was a trail run. I definitely was not ready, but regardless I needed a race in Iowa. The trail was well marked, lots of ups and downs, wooden bridges across creeks and through beautiful meadows. At one point on the trail the leaders and the rest of the pack got confused as to who is supposed to be on which side. It got very jumbled with a couple collisions and some angst.

The town of Cottonwood, AZ was a great little town. Nice downtown area. The race producers put on a good event, I enjoyed it. Now… it is HOT in Arizona in June. Do not kid yourself and take hydration with you. I hate carrying things in my hands when I run, but I took a bottle of water and drained it before the race was over. The race is also a partial road course and a partial trail run up a dry creek bed. So be prepared for both in 110 degree heat!
