Team in Training

As I mentioned last time, I'm going to be a mentor here in Chicago for the early bird Chicago Marathon Team-in-Training participants this year. I'm thrilled to be able to make an even bigger contribution last year and think that the satisfaction of helping 10 or so people to raise the money they need to participate and, in most cases, finish their first marathons is going to be fantastic.
I started my own training two weeks ago but the official kick off is Feb 9th. If you haven't signed up and are interested, I'm going to be at the info session this Saturday at 10am. Here is a list of all remaining info sessions for the curious:
Tuesday, Jan. 22- Running Away Multisport- 1634 W. North Ave., 6:30pm
Thursday, Jan. 24- Fleet Feet- 210 W. North Ave., 6:30pm
Saturday, Jan. 26- Whole Foods, Lincoln Park- 1000 W. North Ave., 10am
There is a good youtube video to give you an idea of what to expect but for the best idea, come to one of the sessions and check it out. For the Illinois Chapter visit the team in training website.
