Quad City Bix 7, July 28th, 2005
The Bix- what can I say? Growing up in the quad cities, everyone always talked about the Bix. Mostly what you heard was “I think those people are crazy- have you seen Brady Street Hill?”. I definitely no exactly what Brady Street Hill is as I have driven it many times and never thought that I could run up it. In fact, I never took on the challenge until after David and I got married! We decided to take a trip to the Quad Cities to see family and at the same time run the Bix 7 as well as enjoy the Bix Festival!
The Bix is only a 7 mile run so we both knew we could do this! The main thing was getting up Brady Street! The interesting thing is that once we started to head up it I don’t think it was as bad as it seemed! It actually went pretty fast! From there the course just does a loop and takes you through some neighborhoods and then back down Perry to the finish. The beautiful thing is that you get to run downhill at the end!
