the city

heading to chicago today for the marathon. this one should be a little different than last year in that we won't be freezing our cheese, but instead sweating our cheese. 85 and humid is the outlook for race day. we have a reservation for 18 on saturday night to carb up. pretty cool. our group includes the usual suspects from my running group, a few former coworkers, some significant others, moms, maybe a pet or two. should be fun.

i am looking forward to not bundling up for this. i'd rather be hot than cold when running, plus i theoretically shed the drag that i had last year with three layers and a Tyvex jacked. certainly made packing easier this morning. i'll be popping electrolyte pills throughout, which should keep me nice and balanced so i don't have to drink all the Endurance in the known universe (pictures, which are very cool, were found at

i'll post more after the race. if you're running, best of luck.

Goold luck buddy. You'll have to tell me how it goes.

I think I'm going to slap this on my goals for 2008. I really want to do this.

Good luck, Andy.

Put a hex on the Cubs while you're up there.
