We woke up to this sunrise view of Lake Michigan and the race finish line!
We headed to the Runners World shake out run where we got to meet up with our friend and fellow Nashvillian, Al. The run met on The Great Lawn at Soldier Field. We were told to do manly, tough pose. This happened!
Al raised a huge amount of money for Multiple Sclerosis through the Chicago Marathon. It made me SOOOO happy to run a little!!! The weather couldn’t have been nicer…40 degrees and sunny!
Jason and I decided to jog back to our hotel and visit the finish line along the way. I can’t wait to cross it tomorrow!
My favorite pre-race lunch is oatmeal…big surprise 😉 We (along with the rest of Chicago) went to Yolk for lunch. It was packed. I had my oatmeal plus a side of french toast. I’ve never tapered this much or eaten this many carbs. I’m curious to see if it helps.
How do you carb-up before a race?
Do you run the day before your race?
Do you have any pre-race superstitions?
