I wasn’t sure what other events, if any, I might register for this year, until Kim of Ilax Studio told me about the Universal Sole Trail Challenge, a trail race in Schiller Woods that was taking place in mid-November. I’ve driven by these woods many times on the way to O’Hare Airport and wondered about running there. This would be an opportunity to check it out in a supported fashion. Laima and I haven’t pulled the trigger yet, but it’s a definite possibility. If you’re interested, head over to the registration page.
The Square by Clean Bottle -- No, it probably won't fit in most bike cages, but it's meant more as a "lifestyle" bottle, good for bringing to the gym, having on your desk in the office, that kind of thing. There are designer purses, designer sunglasses, designer watches, etc. but there's no real "designer" water bottle, so Clean Bottle wanted to address that need. They wanted to design a water bottle that is not only functional (opens from both ends for cleaning, doesn't roll away if dropped, guaranteed for life) but also looks stunning! If you're interested in supporting them, check out the Kickstarter video.
The Chicago Marathon is coming up very soon! Laima and I are considering running next year. Anyone running it this year?
