Whitney Siehl Runs Her Tenth Chicago Marathon and the Big Sur Marathon

By: Jane Sitorius

WBAI First Vice President Whitney Siehl had a busy year and spent most of 2022 training for marathons. Whitney ran her 10th consecutive Chicago Marathon on October 9, 2022. She ran her first Chicago Marathon in 2013 when she was a 3L in law school and loved it so much that she has signed up again and again to run the marathon. The 2022 Chicago Marathon was Whitney’s 14th total marathon. And she had company! WBAI members Karie Valentino and Meredith Rudolfi also ran this year’s Chicago Marathon – congratulations to all!

Earlier this year, in April, Whitney ran the Big Sur Marathon in California. The Big Sur course, much of which runs along the coast, is quite the contrast to the Chicago course in terms of scenery, as well as elevation.

Whitney trains with the Chicago Area Runner’s Association (CARA) and has served as a volunteer pace group leader for numerous winter and spring marathon training seasons.

We also want to extend a huge congratulations to WBAI member Nancy Duenez for completing the New York Marathon! It’s quite an accomplishment and something to be very proud of.
