Dee Brandes's thoughts:

Excellent expo! Got to meet Paula Radcliffe. Heard Joan Benoit Samuelson speak. Great race t-shirt. We used the free shuttle service to get to the Expo. We like to stay within a mile of the starting line as it makes race morning much easier. There were plenty of volunteers to help you find your corral. Super fun & fast course with tons of crowd support. If you like big races, this race is for you. Do not expect your first mile to be as quick as you'd like. It takes a mile or so for the course to open up enough to easily navigate around others. Read up on all of the historical sights you will be running past as this city has a lot of history to share. The finish line is outstanding. I'm so glad the wind waited until the tail end of my race to act up. This was my 2nd Chicago Marathon and I hope to return again someday.
