    Hi! This will be my fourth chicago marathon, and I’ll be running down a 3:30 (or better!) goal and BQ! See you there!

    This will be my first Chicago Marathon and first marathon in 30 years. I’m training to break 3:45, but will be happy to break 4:00.

    Hi, this will be my first Chicago. For those of you who have run it before, I’ve heard the buildings really mess with the GPS signal. Do you just use your lap press button and adjust as you go or have you run with a pacer? I know that ideally feel is best, but I don’t always trust myself to go out slow enough on feel.

      I ran with a pacer in 2016. It was great. There were a few pacers with the same group. They did a great job. I will be running with a pacer again this year. Training for a 3:55.

    Good Luck everyone!

    I’ll try and do a Chicago talk or video soon. I’ve done the race a ton!
