Clearly I have something going on... I mean, non-professionals don't just go out and run 18s for no reason at all. Right? So, I have made the decision not to waste all of the training that I put in to Chicago.
Admittedly, I was considering not putting this out there in the internet world at all (until I tweeted splits via the tracking), but I had enough questions asking me what I was up to now that I was through Chicago. So, Indy was an obvious decision because there was enough time between the two, it was easy driving distance from Cincinnati, and I have two AMAZING friends (Chelsa and Karen) who QUICKLY convinced me this was the right decision and had made a hotel reservation for me the SAME DAY as the Chicago Marathon. I am SO GRATEFUL to have them as friends.
Onward and upward.
