Chicago Goal

The Chicago Marathon is 5 days away! This is the week. When you register for these big races it seems so far away. But after 18 weeks of training and over 600 miles I think I’m ready.

I started stalking the weather last week and it is looking near perfect. I know it could still change and I can’t control it, but so far it looks great, partly cloudy 58.

My friend Marilyn did a very brave thing and let everyone know her goal for Portland last weekend. Marathons are a tough, long race. Anything can happen. You may start out feeling amazing, and at mile 20 your legs feel like lead.

Here goes My A goal is 4:20, My B goal is a PR which would be anything under 4:25:58, my NYC finish.

Wow it’s hard to see that in writing. We’ll see what the day brings.

Good luck to all the racers this weekend. Any must do, see, eat in Chicago?

He's getting big.

    YOU GOT THIS! Sending you speedy thoughts as you go crush your goals!

    Having a drink/snack at the top of the John Hancock building was really fun – a great view if you are not too freaked out by heights! The Trump Tower hotel has a nice (swanky) bar area right over the river, which was fun.

  3. Good luck! I know you’re trained well for this, so I’m hoping everything aligns perfectly for you.

  4. Best wishes. I hope you have a memorable marathon experience!! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that weather forecast holds, it sounds perfect. 🙂
