IT'S TIME TO START TRAINING AND
THE INTERACTIVE TRAINING GUIDE FEATURING HAL HIGDON CAN HELP
LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon Training Consultant and InterActive Training Guide Virtual Coach Hal Higdon shares, "Never before has it been easier to be a runner, whether training for The LaSalle Bank Shamrock Shuffle 8K this spring or The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon in the fall. Don't go it alone. Make use of every resource available. Join a class. Ask questions of fellow runners. Attend a lecture or clinic. The best advice and training programs can be found online on the InterActive Training Guide. As a runner, you never have to run alone."
For more training advice and insight, visit our Web site at http://www.chicagomarathon.com/page_L2.aspx?subMenu=7&Page_ID=28&Nav_2_ID=18 for the new InterActive Training Guide featuring Hal Higdon, Your Virtual Coach. Free discussion forums and 8K training programs are online now.
