Your Sexy Rx:
The Spot: If you're not running the Chicago Marathon, pick a spot along the route and set up camp. I will be up near Belden in Lincoln Park, moving to mile marker 12 and hoping to see my faves at the finish line.
Pick-up Line That Just Might Work: "I like a guy who can run faster than I can." I stole this one from Gentleman Prefer Blondes, my favorite movie. And really, the chase is pretty great.
Who You'll See: Everyone from world-renowned athletes to marathon first timers and their friends and family
Romance Factor: 3/5...well, you've got to do something to pass the time while you wait for your favorite runner.
Couple Factor: 2/5...it's always nice to do something active as a couple. You do have to get out of bed early to go watch the runners, however.
Cinch The Deal: The weather is predicted to be one of the last beautiful summery days of the year. Stake a place at one of the outdoor patios for a mimosa or five. I'd recommend the brand new Henri near the finish line.
