Look at all these people even in the rain! Also, mad shout out to Ken (who I do not know) for putting together an inspirational and emotionally raw account of his Chicago Marathon experience.

has kept Dale, myself and countless others healthy and running for as long as I have been in the running industry. I can’t recommend his enough if you’re in the Chicago area and are experiencing pain in your training and not just for running Tom sees all kinda of athletes from Ironman triathletes to the Chicago Bulls, Bear, White Sox and Blackhawks. Check out Tom on instagram @Chicagospindoc or through his practice at Rush
(looking good Tom!)

Fast finish long runs are one of my favorite for any runners, but especially the marathon. The runs are really simple, start slow for the first 60-70% of the mileage then work yourself up to race pace for the last 30-40% and then build them up. Week one might be 8 miles total, with 6 easy and 2 at marathon pace, then the next week is 10 total miles with 7 easy and 3 at marathon pace and then try 12 miles with 8 miles easy and 4 at race pace.
Dale is prepping for the Copenhagen Marathon, her first international and the soonest she’ll race back to back marathons. We’re excited to see how it goes and you can check out the race, https://copenhagenmarathon.dk/en/
