Some Chicago Marathon logistics:
If you want to track me while I am running the Chicago Marathon this Sunday the 10th, click here and enter my bib number: 16784.
I am not sure how many text updates it will send to your phone, but I will warn you that I will probably be running from around* 8:00 am to 1:00 pm, so the messages might be spread out.
My goal is to run between 11:00-11:15 minute miles, and hopefully finish under 5:00 hours. If I don’t, I won’t be upset.
If you are going to be at the race, you can look for me around those pace groups (maybe 10:45-11:30).
I am hoping to be wearing this outfit:
With these letters. If they don’t work, I’ll use electrical tape.
I have a feeling it’s going to be too hot for that shirt though. So I might wear this and just put “KIM” on it:
If it is freakishly cool I will wear this:
I am doubtful about that! Highs in the low 70s this Sunday. BOO on that! Yesterday everyone at work was excitably telling me it’s supposed to warm up this weekend. Yeah. Not so excited.
I do know it will probably be cool at the start, so I did get a $3 Salvation Army jacket I can throw away:
I’ll post what I decide to wear this Friday or Saturday, but I wanted to get this post up, in case you are too busy to look at it then!
If you are going to the expo, I think Erin and I will be there at some time on Saturday. We are still getting that figured out.
Some Chicago Marathon thoughts:
I am SO SO SO SO SO excited for the race. I am going out there to have fun, and I have a feeling I will find it. The only thing stressing me out is potentially meeting up with a few blogger friends and OF COURSE, making sure I see Steven during the race! I told Erin last week that I was more worried about seeing Steven while running than actually finishing the race!
I do wonder if I have some sub-conscious stress though. Last night I got an awful migraine (pounding headache, sensitivity to light, throwing up) and I wonder if it’s from stress? I don’t feel stressed!
Any marathon tips for me?
*The race officially starts at 7:30 am, but who knows when I will cross the start line!
