2015 Chicago Marathon – Am I IN or OUT?

April 28, 2015

A little Run Jenny Run treat today….two posts in one day!  This morning the Chicago Marathon began their lottery notifications (notifications were rolling throughout the day….I wish I knew the order in which they delivered their emails).  

I refreshed my Athlete Center page a billion times and saw the words Pending laughing in my face all day (some runners indicated their Lottery Status changed before they received their email notification).

Finally….around 4:00PM EST…I hit refresh again… and the Lottery Status changed to Approved

I completed my registration (bye-bye $$$) and now I am officially entered in the 2015 Chicago Marathon! 

So what does this mean for Marine Corps? I plan on running both!  I will run Chicago as my “A” marathon with hopes of a PR and run Marine Corps for fun – how could I say no to its 40th birthday? 

Thanks to everyone for their kind words.  See you there Kristina and Molly! Crossing my fingers Kathleen and Brittany hear some good news today. 

Who else is running Chicago?

Have you been clicking refresh all day?
