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!
