Countdown to the Chicago Marathon!

Countdown to the Chicago Marathon!
Provided by the Chicagoist

It's 7 days until race day for 45,000 participants.

Even though I will not be running this race, I plan to do a lot of press coverage of this event. This is going to be a very exciting week.

I will be covering the following topics during this week:

  • History of the 35 years of the Chicago Marathon (and including THAT year!)
  • The Year of the Woman Dominance: the marathon and how the gender presence has changed over the years.
  • Bring in the Elites: Friday's press conference.
  • "Runner's Christmas": The Expo Experience
  • Local participation within the Chicago area
  • Race Day (of course!)

Strap on your running shoes and get ready for this exciting week!

    Greetings, Chicago Suburbanites! Welcome to Active Suburbia! My name is Denise, but I am known as Firefly, Red, and "Hey there". I will be your tour guide to everything active within the Chicago suburbs. In this blog, I will be your guide to places within the Chicagoland Suburbs that will help lead a more active lifestyle and a lot of fun too. In fact, studies have shown that reading this blog will bring a smile on your face, a spring in your step, and burn those last nasty 5 lbs that you can't get off. (Ok, everything's true except for the last one that hasn't been proved.....YET, but I am determined to make it true.) Here's a short introduction about myself: I am a very active person. You can say that I have endurance, determination, grit, and hard work in my bones. I enjoy running and cycling. I have completed a couple of marathons, half-marathons, 5K's, etc in my running career. I also enjoy trying most things active and willing to explore if I have to. I enjoy checking out the trails near me and doing a lot of running. I also completed my 1st Century ride last September and loved every minute of it. I am also a suburbanite living in the awesome suburb of Berwyn. I am a suburban girl at heart and love every minute of it. I originally grew up in the frozen tundra of the Twin Cities. I am also a die-hard sports fan and enjoy the competitive nature of it. I love baseball, college and professional football, and even hockey. I love cheering for my Twins, Vikings, Golden Gophers, and Avalanche (LONG story - trust me!). I am always interested in finding more fun places within the Chicago suburbs. If you know of a gem, shoot me an e-mail at activesuburbia@gmail.com. You can also follow me on Twitter too.
