Olympian Apolo Ohno and I are Running the Same Two Races This Year

From today's Chicago Tribune:

"Short track speedskating legend Apolo Anton Ohno will run the Sept. 11 Chicago Half Marathon as preparation for his marathon debut Nov. 6 in New York."

So, I will be running two races with a two time olympian and 8 medal winner!  Both races are within a few weeks of each other, yet in diffent cities.  Since it sounds like this will be his first marathon (and likely first 1/2 marathon) I am hoping to beat his times.  Although, he is an Olympic athlete so it will be interesting to see how we compare.
