Oucho!!!!! Very windy so had loooooong run on dreadmill today. Had to press the slow down button a few times

Got my chicago bulls ticket for monday night game. 28$ including booking and e-ticket fee. Could be a bit cheaper if there are a few of you going from vivid seats. Wonder if michael jordan fancies making a comeback

Over halfway through training, legs are getting a bit heavy. Luckily not been too badly effected by the weather. Chicago pizza and Italian beef sandwich is keeping me motivated. Saw them both on man vs food! I'm flying to New York Monday so will miss the game but hoping to watch the bears play after the marathon. I know they are away but I reckon it will be good to watch it in a bar with all the locals.

Noo Yoik Noo Yoik sounds good. How long are you going there for? I was going to go there next year after Washington. I was going to take mum and dad to Chicago but they had other ideas and thought they would just gatecrash marine corps instead. Mum has always wanted to go to noo yoik but dad has never taken her up on it. She then slipped 'how far from washington is noo yoik' as if she didn't know so it looks like i am taking them there too. Better start saving my pennies now!!!!

I think most folk enjoy the sight of a few bears (sp?) after a marathon!!!!

My legs are getting worse. If the point of marathon training is to run on knackered legs day after day what I'm doing must be golden stuff. Either that or it could just be junk miles that are of no great benefit at all. Time will tell which of those possibilities is right :-/

I meant bears.....honest! It sounds like your mum knows exactly what she is up to. We are going for 4 nights. I'm hoping to put on at last a stone in weight, anything less will be a failure.

Sounds like a good plan to have 4 nights there and hopefully get a weekend to recover from one of the world's least relaxing holidays in history.  Sightsee until you drop and marathon running isn't normally all that conducive to recharging the batteries!!!!

I gave up on main courses and started eating starters in Noo Yoik Noo Yoik when I went.  I love my puddings and felt I was missing out on them as I had no room after the biggest portions I'd ever seen!!!!!

I have just had a look to see if there is any sport in NY I can get to see, I got jealous of your Bulls tickets.  Blackhawks are playing on Saturday night before the marathon but barely any tickets left and they are $200+ each.  By the time it starts I will be falling asleep. NY Knicks are playing at home on the Monday night and tickets seem a similar price to what you have paid.  I assume it's because they are pre season games. The NY Rangers and NY Islanders are playing each other the following night which I assume could be quite feisty being local teams (I have no clue about NHL).  Tickets are not out yet so not sure how much $$$.  Also, what is it with the US, it's fixtures...not schedule!
