Sunday Long Run:
On Sunday I went for my 16 miler with Annabelle and Declan:

Marathon Corral News:
I got the word today that Chicago Marathon corral assignments were finally posted (about 4 weeks late)! After checking their website, I found that I squeaked into the "A" corral. So, now need to finish off my training like I deserve to be running with the big dogs!

As far as my training goes, I really only have three more weeks in the 70 mpw range and then it will be taper time. The Chicago Half Marathon is next weekend (Sept. 7) and I would like to run sub-1:28. If I can do that, I know that from McMillan's calculator that I should at least be fit enough to attain a marathon PR (3:05:03). Here's hoping it is somewhat cool next Sunday so I can get the most accurate reading possible and get a realistic marathon pace.
How is your Chicago Marathon (or other) training going?
