Holy moley! It's Chicago marathon weekend already! We've read their blogs, we've checked in with them on the radio, we've followed their trials and tribulations and now it's time to talk with Dan Malinski of Cubicle Dad and Connie Reyes of Marathon MissFit one last time before they can forever call themselves marathoners. (*sniffle* I promise not to cry because crying is for stupid babies and I'm not a stupid baby and shutupshutupshutup.....! *sniffle*) Ahem. It's gonna be badass. Follow @CubicleDad and @MarathonMissFit on Twitter.


11 a.m.
Metromix and RedEye man-about-town Ernest Wilkins of ReMix is coming by the studio to kick off the eleven o'clock hour to class the place up and give the inside info on where to watch Sunday's Chicago Marathon in style. Follow @ErnestWilkins on Twitter.

11:30 a.m.
Alex Quigley and I hijack the show for ourselves in the final half-hour for a few important updates such as how you can now text us during the show (text 24720, my people), our spiffy new Vimeo channel, the Weekly Wager Quigley has *yet* to notice I have paid, the bizarre-o marathon we'll be running ourselves, plus all sorts of other uber-useful bits of information that you cannot possibly live without. Boom!
