Wow, what a great turnout for the KDF full/mini marathon this past weekend. Thank you to everyone that showed their support for our group by wearing your shirts. It was nice to see a lot of smiling faces out on the course. Chances are, we probably got a photo of you. Click HERE to see the photos we posted on Facebook.
This will be our last week of running before we take a little break. It looks like we will have to start the group back on June 14th. We had previously discussed June 7th but a large portion of us will be in Nashville participating in the Tough Mudder.
It looks like a large majority of interested parties indeed did get entry into the Chicago Marathon this year. As a result we will utilize that race as our marathon of choice this year. Those that did not enter the lottery but would still like to participate in Chicago may do so by joining a charity program. Click HERE for details. We are also still trying to get a head count of those planning to participate in Chicago. Please respond via this email if you are “in”.
We also would like to encourage those not interested in the marathon distance to continue training with us and work towards completing the Fall Runathon. This new series consists of a 5k (Sept. 6th), a 10K (Oct. 4th) and a mini marathon (Oct. 25th) Click on the link to get more details.

Don’t forget to acknowledge those sponsors that have made this program possible.
