I've entered the 2009 Chicago Marathon
Well it's official: I've entered the 2009 Chicago Marathon. This it's not just about me though, I'm running for a cause: The Chicago Diabetes project. My sister's trying to raise money for some very important research in battling this terrible disease. They are making incredible progress over at UIC (where my sister works) and are making breakthroughs in growing healthy pancreas cells. So I'm really looking forward to running the race this year. I've already run a half-marathon this year (unofficially) so it's just a matter of dropping some pounds and finding a way to run 4 hours without hitting the "wall". I'm leaning towards carbo loading with stuffing.
