Quad City Bix 7!- July 28th, 2005


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!

Race Day

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!


  • Finally running the Bix- My hometown favorite race
