I registered for Chicago. I am placed in the top 100 corral up with the elites and get a 15:00 head start on the field. To get the top 100 starting position I needed to have run a sub 2:31 marathon in the last 2 years. I ran 2:30:45 at the Denver Marathon. Just squeaked in.. good thing I didn't walk any more than I did!
I'll be surrounded by 50 other guys (and girls) trying to run under 2:20. All of my past marathons I have been caught in no man's land by myself, this should be very good. I have 20 weeks from Bolder Boulder.
