not only is he great at eating sausage... he's also one hell of a runner!

my buddy JP is running the chicago marathon this weekend! he's been training his ass off for over six months.

despite the above photo of him choking down a sausage at the san gennaro festival, he's in great shape and ready for the challenge. a couple of his friends and i are even planning on running with him for a little bit (evidently this is allowed and commonplace in chicago). i'm a little daunted by running even a mile or so... can't imagine what 26.2 would be like?!

the great thing about the training program that JP's in is that it's also a fundraiser for the AIDS foundation of chicago. he's already pulled in a good haul for the foundation and is still accepting donations.

if you feel like making a donation and checking out JP's training notes, you can do it here:

good luck JP! can't wait to root you on!
