You should also run Firecracker on the 4th of July in East Moline. That is a fun race!

You are my hero! I can't imagine surviving a marathon, or even a half marathon! I think this year's Bix will be my last, I am liking the 5K much better. But, maybe I'll change my mind by next year! lol! I have my husband drop me off and pick me up so I don't have to deal with the parking issue. I agree it can be a crowded course, I started too far back and got jammed up, ended up spraining my ankle trying to get around "groups" of runners. emoticon

I ran the Bix in 2010 and decided that would be the only time. I did not like the course, the amount of runners and trying to find a parking place. The post-race was cool but that is about it. I run other races around the QC but my favorite is the Quad Cities Marathon. The half marathon during this even in 2010 was my first HM ever and will always be special. i ran my with my son last year during the HM as it was his first. This year I am hoping to run the full marath9on just a week later from running my first full at the Air Force Marathon in Dayton, OH. I love running!!!!
