I Won The Lottery…The Chicago Marathon Lottery

I loved running the Chicago Marathon this past October.  I decided to enter to the Chicago Marathon lottery again for this year and I was picked.  My race lottery luck has definitely turned around and redeemed itself this year compared to years past.  That means I will be heading back to Chicago in October to run.

Who else will be running Chicago?

    I didn’t get picked for New York, but I won the lottery for Chicago! It’ll be my first Chicago Marathon and first time visiting the windy city. I haven’t paid the registration fee yet though because of some confusion. When I’m on the web page where I enter my credit card info, it’s an unsecure page with no encryption?! That seems odd for a major marathon. I tried to call them, but it just goes to voice mail. I’ve sent them an email, but I haven’t gotten a response yet.
