Chicago Marathon 2015

Corral E for me.  Might scupper my sub 3:45 target so might have to relax and enjoy the experience.

Did anyone else get an invite Erik Kinnhammar for a meet and greet on Friday?

I'm booked onto a pasta brunch cruise on Saturday.

Down the bottom.

I've managed to find a river cruise pasta party on the Saturday so may try that instead.  Want to see the skyline from the water so will kill two birds with one stone.

Manged to get my second 20 miler done last weekend out of three making up for one I aborted at 18.5 so was feeling much happier.

However Chippenham half yseterday went bad after mile 10 so confidence knocked again. 

I have realised I don't actually like running. 

On a happier note where is everyone staying?

I've managed to get a room in the Chicago Athletics Association opposite Millennium park so should be a short journey to the start.

My ability to do a long run has deserted me.  Don't know if it is the heat or what at the moment. 

Starting to get concerned.

Only my 4th marathon and my first was Brighton 2014 so wondering if I have over reached with this one.

New York or Chicago marathon 2015

I stayed in the Crowne Plaza the same as the tour company but booked direct. Cost about the same as sharing a room via the tour company. They laid on coaches and they left from same hotel so made life easier.

Can't remember what time coaches left. I remember feeling like I was running out of time as we approached Staten Island as traffic slowed but there was plenty of time.

I can't remember how long I had a start and they go off in waves. Think I was second wave. Had plenty of time to use the convinences, bag drop and sit around and relax. Mind you it was freezing and very windy.

I'll dig out my iternery and check.

Flights now booked.  Managed to get direct flights with BA for £500 each.

I'm going out on the Wednesday for a bit of sight seeing and returning late on the Monday.

Now for the hotel.

I did New York on flights and entry only and then booked same hotel as tour company for half the price. All I lost that way was the transfers.

Bit of research needed for Chicago for me with a ballot place...

Well sooner than expected I've got my 'you have been successful' email.

Not sure I'm feeling lucky as I am feeling battered after London. I feel worse today than yesterday.

Pleasantly annoying running shoes issue - I'm running faster.
