Hello! How’s your Monday going?
Mine was a little bumpy at the start but turned out great! (I’m ignoring the whole ‘tax payment’ situation all together.) Recently I received a few voicemails from Edison that my power might be off for a few hours today for maintenance, but totally forgot.
Randomly mid-morning everything turned off – even my internet.
So, I had to mess around with Vegas and put on a bunch of makeup while waiting for it to come back up.
After my random antics it still wasn’t up so I decided to head to Starbucks to work for the morning. Boom.
Thankfully by the time I worked a bit and ran some errands (read: donate platelets for money to cover my tax bill) it was back up!
And just as I was about to start this blog post I got an email with some good news…
I GOT INTO THE CHICAGO MARATHON!!!
The Chicago Marathon has become so popular the race organizers made it a lottery this year. This means you had to put your name in the pile and runners were notified today if they got in or not.
I almost didn’t put in for it because I had this feeling I would get in – and hadn’t really planned on doing it in my brain.
But I knew I had to go for it. Chicago is one of the best marathons in the US – heck, it’s one of the best in the world!!
Top 5 Marathons in the World
When you hear people say it’s one of the “Big 5 Marathons” or “Top 5 Marathons” they are usually talking about…
- New York City Marathon
- Boston Marathon
- London Marathon
- Chicago Marathon
- Berlin Marathon
These are some of the biggest, most well-known, prestigious and celebrated marathons in the world.
I’ve done the New York City Marathon, so I have one to cross off that list. I still need to qualify to run Boston. Now I’m in for Chicago! All I need at this point is to find a way across the world to Berlin and London
Back to biz… The reason I was writing this post is because RER will be down from 7pm PST to about 9pm PST TODAY (Monday). We are doing a lot of updates to RunEatRepeat.com and I’m hoping it’s a smooth transition. Thanks for your patience!
Question: Anyone else running Chicago?
Anyone way to eat deep dish pizza with me tonight to celebrate??
