Hey America, and I mean it because alot of you will be visiting Chicago his weekend and you have some decisions to make here. Why? We've got the Bank of America Marathon (a/k/a Chicago Marathon). You are either going to be cheering (you have your designated areas to cheer), running (some great athletes), or you are going to be a non-spectator.
They anticipate 45,000 runners will be running the 26.2 mile race course and the main streets for a good part of the day.
The Run stretches from as far north as Addison (3600N) on the inner drive to as far south as 35th street (hovering around State Street area and going as far as Damen Avenue (2000 West).
If you are not doing and have never witnessed the awe and challenges of the Chicago Marathon, the weather is good and I say go, spend time with your family and support this event.
Check out this interactive course map.
Oh, by the way, they are giving away a free 2009 Volkswagon to the winner.
Hope to see you there.
