    I'm headed back to Chicago again this year to run my favorite marathon for the second time. Last year I stayed at a hostel that was cheap, however, during the whole marathon I was more worried about my stuff still being there when I got back than my actual performance in the marathon!

    I figured I'd just put it out there that I am looking to share accommodations or a floor with someone that Saturday evening, as I will probably head home right after the race is over with. If you are running as well, or live near the start area, let me know if this might be something you're up for.

    Jon.

    I would love to run in the Chicago Marathon but I can't afford the travel and hotel room. Unfortunately, I am unable to help you out on this one.icon_sad.gif

    That's cool...thanks guys!! Boston sounds fun...and yes, the Chicago Marathon entry fee has gone way up. Hotels are ridiculous as many have a two night minimum easily turning the weekend into $1000 just for lodging...which I refuse to take part in!
