A couple businesses in Chicago are offering marathoners special promotions, including:
- The Jonathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa -- throughout October, any participant in the Chicago Marathon 2012 will receive $30 off a 90 minute massage ($110; normally $140).
- The Spa @ Equinox (900 N. Michigan location) is offering marathoners 15% off all massage services. Offer is valid October 8 - 14, 2012.
Tip: In 2002, Chicago running enthusiast Adam Howitt created WalkJogRun, which he says is the first Web site that allows runners to map their routes on the Internet. (Site includes 1,500,000 specialty running routes around the world.) Howitt recently unveiled a WalkJogRun iPhone app equipped with the most accurate running GPS functionality on the market and nearly two dozen training plans designed to help runners get ready for their big race.
