|Dane runs on sentences a lot|
Holy Sh*t, this man is illiterate:
"What I absolutely loved about this race was it's 20 mile option. Which the Fox Valley Marathon situated just a few weeks prior to the Chicago Marathon, for those looking for a last minute catered long run before tackling the big one, there seemed to be no better way to do so then at the perfect time before Chicago (or any other of a multitude of races held on that date or nearby). You can read my recap of the 20 miler last year here"
Where to start?
"Its" not "it's"
"which the Fox Valley" should be part of the first sentence.
"There seemed to be" should be a separate sentence
"Than" not "Then"
"Nearby" is not used to indicate closeness in time.
Stick to cheating in races, Dane, and leave blogging to native speakers.
