My nervousness began to run through my body within hours of deciding that I would target the Chicago Marathon for my next BQ attempt. The nervousness wasn’t so much about the race, or the logistics, or even the training. It’s too early for these nerves to kick in. It was about getting into the race. I *have* heard that the race fills quickly. I couldn’t afford to train up and wait for a long time before registering. So I did it. I’m registered!
Tom has numerous family members in the area. Today, I began reaching out to them with the hopes of generating some support, as well as a place to stay. I think it is going to work out great.
Now, all I need is a few friends on the course, or at least to hang out with at the start. Even though I might have better odds at winning, I would hate to be the only one running the race. Is anyone else planning to run the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon?
