Chicago Marathon 2015

i think the humid weather is making it difficult atm - i usually do 3 a year so know whats its like to have one after another but sometimes you just have to rely on muscle memory rather than solid training - some races i take it easy between them and rely on the mental side to get me through - keep on trying Moo

training ok - did the hilly potteries marathon on sunday dressed in a minion mascot costume as a bet to my 9 year old - and funnily enough i may have set a world record of Fastest Marathon as a Minion Maascot - 4h 13m - sent of application to GWR. 

Went for a easy 5 miles last night and legs ok still - now going to start ramping it up seriously now got that daft one out of the way.

i have a few in fact - i have another room booked at Hotel Rush that i do not need now as the wife and kids aren't coming. I also have a room at the travelodge and a room at Monaco Chicago. I am sure i can change the names on the bookings over.

All are 9th to the 13th (should be able to alter these) and range from $758 to $916 dollars - and all are family rooms.

I have flights from Manchester on Friday 9th - returning sunday night on the 11th - £510 - thought coming back the night of the race will make it easier to sleep on a night flight.

Hotel Rush - $400 for the two nights

Trains and buses around the town and from the airport seem really cheap.

Just completed my Esta form so i can get in the country

Well done on getting in - I booked flights for ??500 and I have a couple of hotels booked being honest - did them a while ago - I have a room at the travelodge on grant park that may be available that was cheap that I will not use now - going with hotel rush now. Let me check my Booking account. I expect a few will be available for those who where unsuccessful cancelling rooms

I have the same idea about the majors - loved the wall at VLM expo with a list of every person who has run a major marathon and saw how few have done all 6 - no doubt because Tokyo is so new to the list - i have done 3 so far (lucky to have done Boston so got the hard one out of the way) - so over the next few years would like to tick off the rest. Stated watching videos of the route on Youtube and it looks plum flat, wide and smooth - could be a fast race if training goes ok. 

Good luck in the ballot.
