Oldest Italian Restaurant in Chicago
I recommend Italian Village because it’s more upscale and central. They also have marathon specials. The restaurant has been serving up dished from northern Italy since 1927, making it the oldest Italian restaurant in Chicago. While you’re there, take a look at the portraits of all the celebrities who have dined at the restaurant in the last 90+ years.
Legacy & Super Ambassador
I ran my first marathon at age 50 in Bordeaux, France, and have finished more than 64 marathons and 4 ultras since then. I’m a qualifying member in both Marathon Maniacs and the 50 States Marathon Club. I’m aiming to finish my 50th state this year in Honolulu, and I have my eye on completing all six of the Abbott World Marathon Majors. I’ve already ran Berlin, Chicago, New York and London and I’m looking to finish up with Boston and Tokyo in 2019. I’m a Brand Ambassador for Nuun Energy, Marathon Maniacs (Illinois and Chicago), XOSKIN Running Apparel, and Racertrips.
