I know I keep being shocked that Chicago is getting closer and closer, but I seriously cannot believe that October is just about a month away. I've been trying my best to stick to my training plan despite lots of travelling and have been feeling pretty good with all of the running I've been doing, despite pretty much sweating buckets every time I workout. Honestly, that's really nothing new. Here's a recap of weeks 7-9 of my Chicago Marathon training.
