so with the exception of the marathon, it looks like you have to get your distance stuff in the first half of the year and your speed stuff in for the second half. there are an aweful lot of longer distance races lumped together in spring, it looks like. it would have been nice if they could spread those out a bit more. hard to PR/ put in your best effort if you have to race all the time.

though, i am guessing that it might have something to do with the fact that soldier field is put on by fleet feet, north shore by running away, and palos by running for kicks. kissing up to area shops much, cara?
