So I am trying to be somewhat easy to track during the marathon. One great thing about being a slower runner is that you have a much better chance to see me on the course. I just wanted to list a couple of different ways to follow me along the Chicago marathon course. My bib number for the race is 30357
Text tracking: Enter my bib number to receive texts when I cross 10K, 13.1mi, and 30K – https://tadpole.textingforward.com/bacm. I have heard bad things about this way. Like getting the text messages several hours after finishing
Runkeeper – I will have my phone with me and will start off a run keeper live session so you can actually see where I am on the course. Once I start the workout, a link will be posted on both my Facebook and Twitter account. Here is my Runkeeper profile in the meantime – http://runkeeper.com/user/joejao/profile
GroupMe – This will probably be the most interactive way to track me and cheer me on. GroupMe is a mobile group text message app and I will be posting occasionally in there at a couple of water stops for updates on where I am, and my friends and family who will be watching can tell you where they have seen me. If you want to be added just send me a message on Facebook or Twitter with your cell phone number and I’ll get you in. I do suggest you download the app if you have it available on your phone, it can get messy.
