It's Officially Official!

The easy part is done.

 I am officially registered for the Chicago Marathon.

Our room is booked!

Residence Inn Chicago / Magnificent Mile

We will book our flights soon.

However, the hard part is the training and the actual running!


According to the marathon website we have 249 days, 20 hours, 22 minutes and 24 seconds to get ready.

Perhaps that will be enough for us to finish!

That number has never looked so BIG.

 Finishing is winning.

See ya at the finish line!

And here I go.  Wondering what the hell I just did!

Bank of America Chicago Marathon
Dear Randee,
Congratulations! You are entered to run in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 9, 2011.

What was your first marathon?  Have you ever ran the Chicago Marathon?


  1. Thunder road in Charlotte took my marathon virginity. I ran it in 5hrs 17min. I ran Chicago last year with minimal training (no training) in 5hrs 45min.
