I’m signed up for the Chicago Marathon!!! October 9, 2011. Wahoooo! I set my alarm for Midnight (I don’t care if that’s lame or not!) and I was UNpleasantly surprised when registration opened at midnight CENTRAL time. bummer! I woke up again at 1:30 and signed up. Then I preceeded to sleep until 6:55, showered by 6:59 and at the train station by 7:10. Training is off to a good start!
