Winter Solstice

wintersolstice1The Winter Solstice is upon us and that’s great news. Sure, we’ll have to deal with winter for the next few months, but each day after December 21st, the days will get longer. I love it!! Seems like we’ve had a bit of winter already, but this week has been a little confusing, weather-wise. Snow and cold, rain and warmer temps and tomorrow – ice. While this will make most people train inside, there’ll be a hearty few that’ll be out there battling the elements for fun and a chance for glory. Check out what’s up this weekend is Chicagoland below.

Events:
Toys for Tots Computrainer Races -Looking for a little motivation to get you through this evening’s workout? Challenge yourself to a computrainer race at HPI Chicago. The event starts at 6pm this evening and it’s free if you donate a toy. For details, click on this Facebook link https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/1406470832924421/?ref_dashboard_filter=calendar

Afterglow – If you enjoy a Belgian-esque style race, you’ll want to head out to the Afterglow race in Douglas Park tomorrow. Most of the snow has melted, leaving soggy grass, chilly temps and a little moisture. Doesn’t get more Belgian than that! For more information, click here https://www.bikereg.com/Net/afterglow.
