The 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon just concluded – but if you are interested in running the 2017 – plan on registering much earlier. 2017 marks the 40th Anniversary of this elite marathon and they have big plans in place, including a significantly earlier registration. Like this year, I have partnered with the American Liver Foundation to help them in their fundraising goals as well as helping with a personal consultation for the winner of the 100,000 AA mile winner!
