I'd be happy to host you next fall, and crew for you if you want to come up for this event.

Sorry. Just discovered there's no 'Mile race' in the Mag Mile event. And the course looks stupid. Too crowded, too many turns.

But sometime during the year, we DO have a mile race. And I'd be happy to host you if you want to come up to do it.

The Medtronic Mile in Minneapolis is fast! Unfortunately, it just happened a few weeks ago.

I would love to make it up to M for some of the great meets/races they have up there.

Well here's a mile race happening in two weeks up on the North Shore. One 180 turnaround. Paved bike path. Looks like a lot of amateurs. We could take the train up there and back. After which you could just remain in the Chicago depot, and catch a train back to St Louis later Saturday morning.

Doing this one in 2 weeks thanks for researching that, looks like fun. We'll do one, get you and Soup to run too, eh?

OK. Here's an article about a running acquaintance, who now regularly wins my age group, when he set the Illinois mile record. You might be interested in this race too in August.
