Marathon day sure got here quickly! I know I couldn’t make it even a quarter of the way before ducking into a Starbucks and hiding out. Even talking with people about their 16 week training programs makes my knees hurt!
For those not in the know, the marathon is on Sunday October 11th. It starts in Grant Park at 7:30am. A map of the route, along with more details, can be found at chicagomarathon.com
Are you running it this year? Did you do it last year? Did you make it a work event or did you con your friends into doing it with you?
