    Hey all! Everyone as excited/freaked out as I am?

    I am staying with Skye near Grant Park, and we are planning to hit the expo Friday afternoon. Is anyone interested in coming along? Also, message me if you are interested in a big carbo loading lunch on Saturday. See you in Chicago!

      Sky is right- I am in B as well! If the weather is decent I'm starting with the 3:20 pace group as well. It will be cool to have a whippets pack there! My number is[masked] if anyone needs me for planning purposes.

    Any one receive their race packets yet? I'm getting pretty excited! I found a PDF version online and had fun going through it last night.

    I know it's a little ways out, but in case anyone else is interested... a couple of friends and I have pre-marathon dinner plans at Topo Gigio Saturday night...

    Hey guys, excited to see so many Whippets ready to run! Hope training is going great for you all.

    Quick question- where are you all staying for marathon weekend? I procrastinated when it came to booking this year (oops!) so have yet to set something up. Does anyone have tips on where to stay, or know of anyone who'd like to split a hotel room? Let me know!

      Anywhere near Grant Park. The Congress Hotel, Palmer House or anywhere around there if there is availability.
