Chicago Marathon Expo

I went to the expo on Friday. It is held at McCormick Place. You can get to the expo by public transport, but it’s not super easy.

The plan was to run the half marathon at the Venloop in preparation for Edinburgh marathon, but as usual these days, things didn’t go according to plan. I still don’t have a lot of energy since being on the new heart medication, so I decided to run the 10k instead. The start is about 400... Continue Reading →
