Chicago Marathon this weekend

The Chicago Marathon is this weekend and we couldn’t be more excited.   The weather is supposed to be spectacular (72° on race day!), so whether you are a participant or a spectator, it is sure to be an wonderful, inspiring day.

When you have a second, check out the official site for the marathon, which highlights some of the stories of runners participating this year.  For example, one of the participants, Jim “Skinny” Sheaham, is President of Special Children’s Charities/Special Olympics Chicago and is running his 30th Chicago Marathon this year!  He has also recruited 250 runners to join him this year on behalf of Special Olympics Chicago.  Amazing.

If you are traveling to Chicago for the race and haven’t yet reserved a place to stay, be careful because hotels are filling up quickly.  There are still a few rooms available at Hotel Felix, but be sure to make your reservations soon! Visit us at to make a reservation.
