Chi-town Bound

Today I am headed to Chicago to run the marathon on Sunday. When I woke up I was less than excited - tired from working, D just got back from the field and then I leave, airports are not my fav. But now that I am at the airport I am excited.
Bad attitude - nothing a little coffee and glitter shoes can't fix.

I didn't spend my normal amount of time stressing, packing and re- packing to make sure I had everything so fingers crossed both running shoes are in the suitcase.
I did remember to bring my participant packet so I can get my race number at least.

I don't know what I want to do with this marathon. Part of me wants to run hard and aim for a PR. It is supposed to be a great course for that. But part of me wants to just cruise along and soak it all in. This may be the only big city marathon I do so I really want to enjoy it. Maybe I will try for both. Head up and fast (fastish) legs. 

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!!!!


  1. Good luck and stay healthy! Either way, you'll have a ton of fun!

  2. Oooo, I say take it in and take lots of pics!!! You have other marathons you can power through.
