Just a quick post to say I'm in Chicago with family, having a great time, relaxing before the race. My 6-year-old nephew offered to have me move in with them on a permanent basis. I said he may want to check with his Dad about paying my living expenses but he seems to think this will be no obstacle, so that's good.
We've just plotted out the marathon course and where I'll meet everyone on the course. It's going to be a cold day, but I'll take that over humidity. Getting excited.
Thanks to EVERYONE for all the well wishes. I will carry them with me.
Next post: THE RESULTS.
