Last night was the Esprit de She race in Chicago. It’s a ladies race & the camaraderie is just FUN! There were tents to get massages (pre/post race), your hair braided & polish change for your nails. I don’t really understand the braid thing b/c why to you need to look so cute when you race & you go home to shower afterwards anyway! But, that’s just me! They had wine & hummos, flatbread & olives afterwards instead of bananas! While I didn’t imbibe in those goodies b/c of The 30 Clean, I did have a few olives & a tangerine! Everyone was all smiles & it was just a good time.
Benji & Truman came to “cheer” us on! Truman really came for the goodies! So happy Rachel ran, look how happy!
Alida (sister in law) & Rachel Love that Rachel has been here from NY, but she’s leaving Monday :(.
The announcer wanted a pic with us. Happy Ending!
The race was a 5k & 10K. I decided to run the 5k b/c the 2 ladies I went to the race with were running the 5k & I didn’t want them to have to wait for me to finish. It was fun to run a short race & felt good to finish. It’s hard for me to run in the evening, but this was a perfect night! I even finished 1st in my age group! It pays to be in the upper ages & be part of a small race!
If there’s an Esprit de She in your area, I would definitely run! It’s Just fun!
