In the Footsteps of Pheidippides

I'm tackling the Chicago Marathon Sunday.  

I hurt my right Achilles tendon somehow during the Chicago Triathlon, in August, and I'm not sure it's quite right yet for the distance.  So I'm taking a conservative approach to this 42k fun fest.

After all, about 40,000 people have signed up, and misery loves company. 

I'll jog slowly, or walk if I must.
But it's 26 miles or bust!
