Last Sunday, my running group was going to run the last 6.2 miles of the marathon course for prep. They must do this every year. They think it helps to know the course because at the end, you are mentally and physically drained. So it helps to know the turns or the hills.
My friend used her phone to track our run.

Did running the end of the course help me in any way? That has yet to be determined but at least it got my mid-week 6 mile long run out of the way early in the week. And there is only about 1.5 weeks left until the marathon! Seriously?? I can't believe I made it through the training program in one piece! Just a minor ache here, an IT band issue there. But I'm here. And I'm ready to rock out the Chicago Marathon!!
