Good luck Chicago marathoners!!!

Post  Diego on Wed Oct 05, 2011 9:45 am

Chicago will always hold a special place in my heart because I ran my first marathon there in front of millions of spectators. I will never forget the kind words of encouragement given to me during the race and especially afterward, as I walked back to the McCormick Center, my medal hung I proudly from my neck.

Ignore the weather. It's not 2007 or 2008. Just drink more, and have a great time!! In the long run, it's the experience rather than the time goal that will provide the better memory.

Good luck everyone! I wish I could be there. This week my social studies lessons were about Chicago and of course it makes me think of all my friends who live/run there. I hope it's a great day for everyone.

As an aside, of course I mention my friends who live in Chicago, and my students told me that whenever we talk about a place in social studies, I know some interesting people there. I told them if you're a runner, you meet great people from all over the world.

Anyway, go burn up the streets on Sunday (but don't forget to save some energy for Mt. Roosevelt). Smile

Yes, yes! Best of luck to all of y'all running it. It's because of the folks I met in 2008 that makes me want to return to Chicago to run it again.

You shouldn't have any issues with that. I am sure that someone will put together a tracking thread. Everything you need to know will be there. And even some things that you didn't need to know Smile

Jack and Nick how can we forget you guys! Actually when I'm going through a tough patch this weekend just for you I will think to myself "What would Jack do in a moment like this?"

Good luck to both of you this weekend also!

Go guys go. I'll be watching for you on tv and online. I wish I could be there with you, despite the forecast. I've learned more than I ever knew as I struggle through some piddly miles just what a special thing it is to be able to run a marathon, so go enjoy every amazing step. Even the hard ones, they are most amazing of all.
