A Marathon Packing LIst

10-10-10
The time is finally here! The Chicago Marathon is 4 days away, and it's time to pack my bags (carryon all the way!!), and get this show on the road!

Packing list:
Oatmeal + raisins
Gel (Clif Shots mocha is my jam) Electrolytes, Socks, Stretchy Pants, 1 Nice outfit, just in case, & marathon outfit & lush Wiccy Magic Muscle bar

& a whole lot of inspiration, pump up music and good vibes!
"It's not like somebody else can run a marathon for you. It's all you out there. Finishing means you can say, "There's not a lot I can't do."
-Kenneth Feld, Owner, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

And we're off! BOS->CHI Friday am, Wanderings around CHI Fri/Sat. plenty of carbs, movies, and friends! Then we'll be surrounded by 45,000 other racers Sunday morning. No one can ever predict how a race will go, and I'll be sure to keep you updated afterwards. We'll see how much I'm hurting afterwards, but i know we do get one free beer ticket ;)

Guess what, it's our time to own it

any last minute Chicago food/outing recommendations???
