    I'm registered for the Shamrock Shuffle and will be signing up early for the Marathon this year early so that I don't miss my chance to shine. Anyone else doing either of these two races???

    I'll be sure to do that. Of course I just need to start training for it which I have now that I added in the cardio in my regiment. After a week of that, then it's time to add in the weights so I get a bit toned and slim.

    I'm considering the 2008 Chicago Marathon. I want to run a marathon in the coming fall or winter, but it depends on how some races I am doing this spring go.

    The only problem for me with Chicago is my marathon specific training would start late July, and there is some killer heat in Nashville that time of year.

    I did Chicago '06 and it was a great time...

    Hi,

    I have decided to do one this May and am looking at the Rockford or Lake Geneva. Have any of you done those? I did Chicago a long time ago and am looking for an early summer/late spring one. Anyone use the training program offered on this site? Thanks - KEITH

    i'm hoping to do the Shuffle this year, as well as a few other 5Ks [like Proud to Run in late June] and hopefully by the end of summer i'll in shape to take on an 8 or 10K.

    I may do a few other 5K and 10K's in the summer too. Just not sure as of yet. All I know is that I have to be ready to sign up for the Chicago Marathon this year. Can't miss the booking of that race. Not if I want to reach one of my life goals of getting to the Boston Marathon before I turn 30.

    Helium,

    I am signed up for the Shamrock Shuffle. My goal finish time is 45 min (9 min/mile). Maybe we can run together at Ballys Cumberland?

    Also, gonna do the Chicago Half Marathon in August. Are you?

    Yay, my first post! I am hoping to do the Chicago marathon this year. Are there any good races in the summer time to prep?

    Up to you to decide on that. I would say to try and see if you can get in the half marathon. That's a good start to do since that will give you an idea as to where you're at. Besides, that race is usually a month or 2 before the marathon. I don't recall for sure though. You'll have to look it up.
