Chicago Marathon 2015

Yeh I got an invite but it does look a little far out, looks like a metro trip. Have you said your going. For me it depends how long it takes to get number as I only land at midday Friday and want to get to hotel and get race number. I am just in the normal pasta party at 4pm.

Everyone made sure their ESTAs are up to date - got in a blind panic last night but then remembered I'd done it months ago.

Forgot about throws away stuff - 13 miles done today with mile 12 being the Killer Mile up Mow Cop in Staffs - a 1 in 4 incline which was brutal but tested the leg power. 3 more gentle 5 milers for me now then that's it. Hope everyone has a bug free week and Roll on Sunday

Yeh I booked the early slot so not too late -$40 though - also in London - well done on the ballot given the odds now - hoping Chicago gives me another GFA time - need sub 3.15 which will see me good for the next two londons. This time next week I will be packed and in bed ready for early flight

Got mine too - ready to go - got corral A so should be done by 10.30 he hopes.
Got flight back at 5pm so might even get chance for a shower. Kelp watching course videos on YouTube trying to visualise it - looks really flat and fast. Taper started now

that's the last big one done - 22 miles in 3 hours - with more still in the legs. Now starts the taper madness for me. Resigned to running with this ankle ligament injury though, will never get rid of it before race day. New trainers arrived too so its like Xmas. Cold gone but the kids are all spluttering so avoiding them now.

Not guilty your honour re the cold! mine was only for a couple of days so not too bad.

I have not had any emails either - hoping to pick up on the Friday afternoon just after arriving. New trainers arriving today - more Ultraboost so really feeling like its close now. One last long run this weekend then time to slow down.

Agree with that - got really hot on my run - bit of an hangover from GNR - still thought I was racing so got 23 done in 2h 55m - little quicker than I wanted
Might do one more long one next week then slow down - starting a bit of a cold so hoping this is all the germs out of the way before the race

Planning my biggest this weekend - 23 miles around Wilmslow, bra ball and Stockport - pretty flat. It want to take it really easy. Legs still slightly heavy after GNR.

downloaded mine - as its the US i look at maps and think its miles to walk from say the hotel to a station but in reality i bet its not too bad. I think its just pre travel jitters. Is anyone using the trains at all to get from the airport - looks like a little trek just to get out of the airport
