Training for Marathon

Chicago Marathon Completed

Last year I decided to run a full marathon. It took me almost 18 months to reach my goal. Finally the D-day came in Chicago. I have always loved Chicago but now it will be special for life. The city where I finished by first marathon. First of many more to come.

Most importantly I get to run for a great cause, fighting cancer, doing my bit to help the world to be better place. So many stories, so much pain is still around and it is sad to hear all of it. I just hope I can do something to help.

Chicago Marathon was amazing. We left Seattle on Friday for Chicago, after 4 hours flight reached O’hare airport. Took public transport to our hotel, Double Tree. Then it was time to wait and fuel up. Smile Had lot of deep dish pizza.

Race day was perfect, great weather around 40-50 deg for running. Overall I finished much slower than what I had imagined but goal was to finish and I achieved it. Actually felt really great at end of the race.

Some Pictures from the race
