    I will be there too. I hope it isn’t hot like last year because it was BRUTAL! And yay for a new course because I don’t want to run again in the parking lot. :-)

    I actually attended auditions for the Chicago Spirit Brigade and they are INTENSE.

      Interesting! One of my friends auditioned for the Luvabulls a few years ago – she didn’t expect to make it, just wanted to have the experience.
