If you are in the central Illinois area in the beginning of November, you should really check out the Forrow Euro. Every year it is such an adventure. There are 4 creek crossings, a bridge, and usually a few obstacles. Today it was raining with about 25-35 mph winds. It was chilly but not freezing, which was helpful. I ran with my daughter the entire race this year and we had a great time together. She was quite muddy when we were done. Climbing out of the creek was a slippery, muddy mess. We are planning on doing a turkey trot together on Thursday morning too. I love having my daughter join me on these running adventures!
