2013 Chicago Marathon!!

I DID IT! I signed up for the Chicago Marathon! I had been planning to sign up for a while but I really got cold feet this morning. And then registration too forever because the site was down. 

Running a marathon is a big commitment with all of the training you have to do. The 15-25 miles runs take a long time and you have to prep the day before with good food and sleep. And since I do these long runs on the weekends, it kind of impairs my social life. I can't go out one night and expect to run a good 20 miles the next day.

The good thing is that a few of my friends are also running the race, so I'll have people to train with. And I also have Ryan's support of course. I'll outline my training plan after the Indy 500 Mini Marathon in May.

Have you signed up for any races this year?

What is your 2013 Chicago Marathon goal?
