Christmas in July Races 2015 Giveaway!!


This year I will be running the Christmas in July Races at Lisle Community Park in Lisle, Illinois. I’m not sure if I’m going to run the 5K and defend my 3rd place (woman overall) award or if I will do the 10K.  If you’re not into the shorter distances and you want to challenge yourself in one of the ultras you can choose from a  6hour, 12hour or 24 hour race. This is a 2 day event from July 17-18.  Check out the Christmas in July website for more information about this event.

  1. I would like to to do the 5k or 10K but they’re doable. 🙂 Plus, I enjoy running those distances.

    I did this race last year and it was so fun. On the fence about whether I would do the 5k with my daughter or the 10k.

    I would love to run this… I’ve never heard of this race before. I would run the 5K as I am a new runner and not yet ready for a 10K. I have liked your FB page also 🙂
