I’m in

I’m posting this a week late, but I am happy to report that I have officially received guaranteed entry into the 2015 Chicago Marathon!


This is the second race (both marathons) that I’ve registered for this year. Upon crossing the finish line, it will be my 6th full marathon.

I’m so excited for the Chicago Marathon this year—possibly even more excited than I was to run my first marathon, in my hometown, Sioux Falls, S.D. That was a year and a half ago. Now, Chicago is the city I call home.

This year the Chicago marathon takes place on Oct. 11, which happens to be my one-year wedding anniversary to Megan. (Thankfully she gave me her blessing to compete.)

Running this race has been a goal of mine since I started training for my first marathon. It holds even more significance now that live, work and train here.
