Fleet Feet Sports Chicago photo shoot

Fleet Feet Sports Chicago hosts a women's only race every July called the Women's 5K, 10K, and Festival. I did the race in 2009 and 2010 and really enjoyed it. This year, the race is changing a little bit. It will take place earlier in the year in June, there's a new route through downtown Chicago, and there will be a 5K and half marathon distance. The race will be the only all women's half marathon in Chicago! Kind of exciting. So of course Fleet Feet is looking to really spread the word about the race and create some excitement around it. They put out a call for runners to model for an ad campaign that will be seen around the city, and guess who is one of the models they chose? Me! and I'm super exciting to help promote the race! Saturday was the photo shoot for the campaign. I had a blast. I had my makeup professionally done by their stylist, which I don't think I've had done in over a decade.
Fleet Feet provided an entry to the half marathon. Of course I didn't have that on my 2012 racing schedule, but I'll find a way to fit it in : ) I'll probably start training right after the Shamrock Shuffle in March. I pray my injury allows me to train properly and finish the race INJURY FREE! Oh, and I got to keep the lovely outfit I wore for the photo shoot. New Balance capris, a short sleeve tech shirt, and a pair of New Balance 890. Very cute stuff! I can't wait to share some of the images and more about the upcoming race!
