The inaugural Illinois Marathon is Saturday, April 11.  Maddie Follis (in the Illinois Marathon cap) and her good friend Chelsea Frerichs will be among the more than 9,000 runners (2,000 marathoners, 4,400 half-marathoners, about 3,000 5K runners) .  A guy at the gym said to me today, "26.2 miles is a long way to drive.  And they are going to run it?
