week 18 of 18

my friends, i have come to my last week of training. i admit i am ecstatic!!! this coming sunday i will be running the 2009 Chicago Marathon.

my goal is to get across the finish line in one piece. i didn't train for the last 2 weeks because of a cold, but i finally did run 8 miles on saturday, and it was okay. i'm hoping to get rid of the last traces of a cough that has lingered. so i won't be aiming for a specific time.

according to weather.com, the temperature will range between 41 and 47, with 30% chance of rain. that is chilly! i will most likely wear my regular training outfit - lightweight shorts, tank, cap, and also add a dry-fit long sleeve.

a couple things:
