Wow...The Cubs are Bad...

shit man. When does my team get to win. It's not over yet....but my god they look like they should have been in the NL Central cellar.

Leah got a present today...oh yes she did...she's a little terrified of it...yes she does like to refer to herself in th 3rd person....but something she can grow into...another thing to learn.....the Canon 40D (whoo hoo to real money!) I hope to get back into a photo-a-day thing with this sucker. Also should have some good pictures of us running tomorrow because not only can it do your laundry, but when you press the shutter....the picture takes immediately! So Chicago people, be prepared to talk to me with a camera strapped to my face for awhile.

So right. The marathon.....wait let me do a weather check as I sit in a pool of my own sweat like it's the middle of fucking July...yep....no magical weather gnomes coming with cooler weathr. 75 degrees at the start....no clouds. Well here's to a fun day anyways. Look for signs like these (yes...yes they were taken with the new camera) all over the course as our spectators will be along the course every 5 miles.

When I say CHICAGO you say MARATHON....When I say Chicago you say "GOING TO SWEAT MY ASS OFF"

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.
DO. NOT. BE. A. HERO.

This is probably not the race to PR. Be careful and have fun out there! It's a great race with lots to look at along the course...plus when you tell people that you ran a marathon in 88 degree temps they'll think you'll a total badass.....or a moron.

Leah, thank you for this post. It made me laugh out loud which was very much needed since I have been a giant ball of nerves today awaiting my impending run through hell tomorrow.

Good Luck to you and Jason!!!
