    I’ve never been to a big race with an expo like that. The closest I’ve got is Birmingham and then maybe Atlanta. It looks like you’re having a BLAST and I so look forward to hearing about the race. πŸ™‚

    You’re right – that expo looks amazing! Your post reminded me of how much I love Chicago. And good for you for making it on the L. I did the same thing when I first visited – made my way to the airport all by my lonesome by using the train. It was so easy! Of course it helps that I’m used to the Metro here in DC. πŸ™‚

    Why is your t-shirt a different color than everyone else’s?

    I love the long sleeve shirt you bought! So cute! I went to Chicago once and did not even think to have deep dish pizza, how dumb am I?! Anyway, the expo looks like so much fun! Although I could do without the the Bank of America branding, since you know, I just QUIT MY JOB THERE! πŸ™‚

    GOOD LUCK tomorrow!! So excited for you, I’m tracking you and I will be thinking about you all day!

    The expo sounds awesome, and you’re gonna rock your 10-10-10 marathon!

    I went to Lou Malnati’s during the HLS, and while their pizza was good I have to say that I wasn’t super impressed with it either. I thought it would be a lot gooier πŸ˜‰ I really wish I had the chance to try Epic Burger now!

    Being a native Chicagoan, I do not like Gino’s . You have to acquire a taste for the corn bread crust. There are much better locally owned pizza places in the city. Have fun in the city, iy’s a great place to be.

    Other favorite foods I always eat when I am in Chicago are:
    Italian beef sandwich at Portilo’s and don’t miss a Chicago dog with the works, (though you can get those in Orlando)
    You can get either at Midway on your way out of town. Good luck in the race and whatever you do don’t bust

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!! I ran in the Rock N Roll Half in August in Chicago and that expo looks familiar πŸ˜‰ (i also spent 3 hours there- which is a bit embarassing, considering it was probably half as big as yours was today) I cant wait to hear how you do!! I run my first marathon a month from 3 days ago (nov 6th) and tomorrow is my last lloooong run day (i have another half marathon next weekend) so I love looking at your pictures of the expo- gets me so excited!!!
