Now the scary part begins...

October 22, 2006. Chicago Marathon. I've signed up. Two friends of mine are running and have talked me into it.

So it begins.

First thought: I'm terrified.

Second thought: I'm glad I have 10 months to condition myself. I'm ready to race anything up to a half, but a full, I know, is a whole new ball game.

Third thought: Deep dish pizza, blues clubs, great architecture, shopping and the home of the Cubs. Love Chicago -- took my brother there two years ago...

Fourth thought: I'm doing a 4 to five month training program, so no need to push my mileage up by crazy amounts until mid-summer (phew!)
Oh, the two friends.. I think about how i'll identify them in this blog..
