So, February 1st at midnight, the Chicago Marathon opened for registration. I had recently been going back and forth between rather or not I should Grand Rapids or Chicago. I couldn't help myself and I impulsively registered for Chicago. It's just something that I could not pass up. It's a once in a lifetime event. Well, I guess I could have done it another year. But, it's a heck of an event from what I hear. So, I decided that after Boston and Kalamazoo, I will get a month of maintenance training and then I will hit the training hardcore for Chicago. I am going to shoot for a sub 2:50 at Chicago. If I can knock out Boston in under 3, then I think that is a reasonable goal. I of course will still be tempted to go and do Grand Rapids the next week....maybe I'll do the Half there. Well, I've got 3 marathons so far to train for this year-super excited, can't wait!
