Need something to do this weekend? How about running 26 miles? If that sounds interesting, but intimidating you could just watch the Chicago Marathon which starts early on Sunday Morning (10/12) in Millennium Park and then wraps up in the South Loop on the south side of Grant park. The race goes all throughout the city, but the final stretch comes right through our back yard and down Michigan Avenue.
Or if watching people torture themselves by running isn’t your thing, you can check out the Chicago Country Music Festival which will be in the parking lot between Soldier Field and McCormick Place. Highlights include Gretchen Wilson and Taylor Swift among others.
Weather should be nice this weekend, so take advantage of it.
