Chicago Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon

The day of the Chicago Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon finally arrived! I woke up bright and early this morning to be downtown at 6am to join over 20,000 runners for the half marathon!

15 post race reunion and medals

Post race with our metals! I had estimated I would finish in 2 hours and 45 minutes, but made it through the finish line at 2 hours and 36 minutes! (about 5 of those minutes were spent on a bathroom break I had to take at mile 7)

Thanks to everyone who came out to the race to support us! Here we are with the encouraging sign Will’s sister made for us!

I had such a blast at the race today! I cannot wait to sign up for my next half marathon! Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon in Las Vegas maybe?!


  1. Get it girl!

  2. So proud of you!!!

  3. Saw this post since I signed up for the event this year and am looking for reviews. It’s pricey, but I’m gonna be in town anyways.

    • The Chicago Rock and Roll Half Marathon is a lot of fun! Lots of great music and nice course along the lakefront – not sure if the course is the same this year, but I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun! Good luck!
