Music and the Marathon

About 45,000 runners are expected to pound the pavement this Sunday for the Chicago Marathon. As they bound through Bronzeville, lope through Lakeview, and try to keep pace in Pilsen, what’ll they be listening to? The sounds of the crowd, of course. And for many racers with earbuds in, they’ll also be hearing whatever they’ve lined up on their phones or iPods. We check with one serious runner to find out what he’ll be listening to when he takes to the streets for his 6th Chicago Marathon on Sunday.
