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.
