Hey guys, it’s almost time. After over 700 miles of training, countless hours of yoga & weightlifting, it’s time to #OwnChicago!
This week saw just a few more training runs. They looked something like this:
It was nice to have shorter runs this taper week leading up to the race.
I still can’t believe it’s here. It’s been so many months of running many many miles at ungawdly hours. I mean, just look at this daily alarm setting:
I’m happy to report though, that we ran EVERY SINGLE TRAINING RUN. We didn’t skip a single one. No, they weren’t all pretty, but at least we were out there.
I still can’t believe the final run came and ended…
Now it’s here. Time to run 26.2 miles. Going to let me sink that in for a while.
In the mean time, feel free to stalk me:
I’ll be Instagramming hard in Chicago: @piratebobcat
I’ll bet Tweeting too: @piratebobcat
You can track me TWO ways during the race (My bib number is 2411):
- Download the Chicago Marathon App
- Get updates with MY RUNNER TRACKING
That is all. See you on the other side.
GO GET IT! Have fun this weekend, Scott. You earned it!
You have worked so hard for this! All the best!
I’m dying for a recap over here! Come back, pirate, come back!
