With registration opening in 2 days, I thought I'd start a thread where we can keep track of who is coming and whatnot. I live about 2-3 blocks from the finish this year!<br><br>
Anywho, who is coming???<br><br>
I would run it, but it's $110 and I've already done it. I am thinking about it though.<br><br><i>Marathoners</i><br>
Maria's Sis<br>
Voodoo<br><br><i>Athletic Supporters<br></i>Oache<br>

Yay, <b>Maria</b>!!! Maybe you and your sis can go shower, change, eat and get your car when you're done and then come pick me up at the finish line...? I'll probably still be angry, though<img alt="smile.gif" src="">
It's funny, because I always seem to think about your Chicago Marathon when I'm running a marathon. I remember back then you talking about the deathmarch and I'm thinking, "How in the hell can someone finish in such an awesome time while struggling?"<br><br>
Now I get it, but back then, it was unfathomable that one could walk during a marathon and run 3:44.
Oh, and I got my corral assignment -- Corral C. <img alt="banana.gif" src=""><br><br>
And when they asked for projected finishing time, which has nothing to do with corral assignment, I put down 3:25. <img alt="shock.gif" src="">
I'm in.<br><br>
Had to change the fall goal race due to work stuff. Yes, I think I might be 'effin crazy.
YAY!!!!!!!!!! Party in chicago!!! <img alt="banana.gif" src=""><br><br>
When I figure out if I'll still be living here, I'll let you guys know...would be happy to let a couple out-of-towners crash.<br><br>
I'm in Corral S. For Slow as Hell.
You better still be here.....we haven't met yet and then if you move I'll be pisssssssssssed!!!!!

Did I tell you guys that my wife gave prelim greem light for this race? I need to get my buddy committed to the race. He's been in the Cayman Islands, I wonder if he's back yet. I wouldn't mind getting signed up before I leave to race this weekend.
What kinda time are you looking to run there? What do you need to BQ? 3:40?
Biah, you can add Tonya into the support role.
To BQ I need a 3:45:59, but by then I'm hoping to blow the doors off the finish. Just need this leg to hold up and my mileage to be where it was last summer. I lost the lbs. I wanted to and have already felt the effects with a nice boost in speed <img alt="wink.gif" src=""> Momma is going for broke!!!!!!
If I get my BQ this weekend (and that seems like a big if) then I think it would be really fun to pace you guys. My buddy (if he signs up) should be able to run about a 3:40 in his debut...provided he does the training and all that. So we could potentially run all or a lot of the race together.<br><br>
You do have a time that will get you into one of the preferred start corrals? (top 12,000)
Yes, right now I can be seeded in corral D but I'm planning to better my HM time before the deadline and thus making it into corral C.
Sweeeeet! You've been kicking butt this year; you're gonna rock Chicago!!<img alt="banana.gif" src="">
