The 2007 LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon - Just Days Away!

With The 2007 LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon this Sunday, it has been an exciting week at the office here at NB Web Express. Three folks in our main office are running this Sunday. One of them, Nick, who is featured in our "Go Nick" story on Runner's Express and our Chicago Marathon page is running Chicago for the second time, while the other two are hitting 26.2 miles for the first time ever in their running careers.

Kevin, who was featured in a previous post on our blog about his experience in a half marathon, left yesterday for Chicago. He was excited and ready for the start line, and his group of cheerleaders will be there to root him on!

We also have a group of folks headed down there to help with the Health and Fitness Expo where New Balance (as the sponsor) will be a key presence. If you happen to be heading to the Windy City this weekend, pop in and say hello, you will most likely see a group of excited and happy people decked out in New Balance ready to help.

As I have said before in this blog, I have never run a marathon. But after talking our runners and soon-to-be career marathoners, the most important thing to do is your best. Put everything out there and don't be too concerned about time. Keep looking up and looking ahead! You'll hear more from us as Sunday gets closer!

Good Luck!
