marathon time

Most people run a race to see who is fastest. I run a race to see who has the most guts.
– Steve Prefontaine


its race time!

the Marathon website says 1 day 21 hours till race time!
OMG 2 days away! 17 weeks of training. this is what i've been waiting for.

to run 26.2 miles with 45,000 other runners! no joke 45,000. its a first come first serve race. which cost $125 just to run. not complaining, just sayin.

it better be worth it. from what i've heard from numerous co-workers, friends and random people...its the best race ever. super flat and there are a ton of people cheering everyone on. roughly about 1.5 million people will be there!

screw the olympics chicago. you have one of the best marathons in one of the best cities!

so if you want to track me on race day click here.
if you're in Chicago cheer me on!

PB&J and i will be out in Bucktown on Sunday night. after the race, a few beers and a nap. in that order.

thanks to all the friends and family who have help support me and put up with all my complaining the past 17 weeks! i couldn't have done it without you!

Oh, and good luck to PB&J, Mark, Greg and all the other runners!

who here has run in the Chicago Marathon? any advice? will you be there?
