Our rep at the race told us to bag it and she'd work with us to get everybody on our team in since we were so patient. I feel bad for the people at the marathon, it's not their fault. As usual, it's active.com, not having the bandwidth. I'm going to guess that next year they don't use active. If they do, they'd best prep for more problems like this.

Good Lord.  This was a 2 hour ordeal I didn't expect to have at work today.  I got in finally.  Tried to get my husband in and got charged for him, but got bumped off after I hit "pay now."  Our charity team captains have been talking to reps on the phone all day and they sent us an official email from BOA Marathon that said if you got charged you are definitely in.  My husband never got a confirmation (I did) but we'll have to deal with that later.

Chicago Marathon sent around confirmation emails last night to everyone who registered. If you and your husband both got one, you've got nothing to worry about.

According to the website, there are 15,000 spots remaining, and an update with be provided at 5pm (CST) on Thursday.

The marathon should be the easiest of the three!

Yes, we both got that email last night and found our names online.  Apparently there was a different link to confirm your registration if you were with a charity that we didn't know about earlier.  Whew!

My friends are quite unhappy. I understand why they're unhappy -- they were logged on a ready to rock n roll at noon last Monday and didn't get in because of technical problems.

Just submitted my lottery entry.  I wasn't planning on doing this originally, but if luck puts me in, then I think it was a calling.

I do not think they let anyone know yet.  At least they did not announce that everyone has been notified yet (which I hope they would).
