It's about a month until the Chicago Marathon.

I think I'll be ready. My initial goal was a PR, hoping for something less than 4 hours. After spending 5 or 6 weeks with a stomach virus around July, my new goal is to finish. I kept trying to do a modicum of training, so as not to lose ground, but I just felt weak. Around the beginning of August, I started to feel better. Now I'm feeling stronger and stronger. Finally. That feeling of metamorphosis that comes after a few good long runs.

It's also about three weeks until my wedding. Pretty much everyone's eyebrows shoot up when they hear that. But I'll be tapering, I say.

It's still a lot of work.

Good luck and best wishes. Is Chicago a honeymoon destination?

Thanks!
We live in the Chicago suburbs, and the wedding will be here, too. But it's nice to be reminded that some people would think it was a destination...
