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>

So I could be interested. How long is this marathon thing? <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
You better not be teasing!
Just 10.2 miles more than your most recent LR <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Well, it <i>is</i> Chicago.....probably 27.3 miles if Mark Cihlar is allowed back in town...
I might be talked into being an athletic supporter, if I find a job before then. <img alt="wink.gif" src=""><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">(no, seriously. BIL lives there and it's not that far from here, if I still am here, so it'd be an easy weekend trip...)</span>

(maybe Auntie and Uncle Moe as AS)

I just looked up flights from Cleveland, should I happen to be there, and it's pretty cheap. Looks like I'd just have to convince dh it's necessary for me. heh.
Yes, and Yes!!!!!!!!!! Will you bring the pooches?<br><br>
The <b>Moes</b> have been added!!

Do yall have Moe's? I know there's lots of Chipotle talk in here. But, I like Moe's.
<b>Kath</b> - you could always drive to Grand Rapids and carpool with us!
Not likely. SIL is horribly afraid of all dogs, regardless of size. Doesn't matter how nice or well behaved they are. So there is <span style="text-decoration:underline;">no way</span> she would allow them to stay in their house. <img alt="sad.gif" src=""><br><br>
And I can't stop laughing at the thought of the expression on her face should she ever see them wrestle. HAAAAA!!!!
<img alt="biggrin.gif" src=""><br><br>
I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!
Southwest usually has the cheapest flights. You can't book flights past August yet on their Web site. I bet there'll be flights for $49 each way, so about $114 when all is said and done.<br><br>
Btw, my uncle signed up for Chicago. Not sure why, the odds are he'll be injured and probably won't run it. It would be his first marathon and second race. He's run one 5k. He's in good shape, especially for a 50+ year old. But he doesn't get it that your tendons and ligaments and all that need to get used to running. We were going to run a marathon last year, but he got hurt. I think he's finally forgot how much marathon training hurts sometimes! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
<b>ATTENTION:</b> Word on the street is registration is likely to close by April 18th. If you are going to sign up, do it ASAP (now even).
Wow! I've been telling people June. Not people who will be running the race, though.
I may sign up next week after I finish this race. It just depends. HOpefully, it will still be open if I decide to do so.
If I don't have a major exam that Monday, I might be persuaded to take the train in to be an athletic supporter. I still owe some people a beer. <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
