Today’s Special Occasion: The Chicago Marathon

This weekend thousands of runners will flock to the Windy City to compete in the Chicago Marathon.  If you're a runner, then you know you have to pace yourself during the course of a race.  You can't sprint the first mile, lest you run out of energy for the remaining 25.2 miles, and, similarly, you probably wouldn't run at a snail's pace for the first 25.2 miles and then all of the sudden turn it on at the end to zoom past your competitors as you near the finish line.  It's important for runners to keep their pace steady throughout the race, running quickly enough to keep close to other lead runners while leaving something in the tank in case a quick finishing burst may win the race.  One of the best benefits of becoming our student is that we allow you to work entirely at your own pace.  You can go as quickly or as slowly as you want in your courses, learning at a rate that is comfortable for you.  While it is ideal to work steadily, we've seen students succeed working very rapidly at first and slowing down near the end and others succeed by working slowly at first and then more quickly as their graduation date approaches.  No matter your pace, you have a dedicated staff here to support you and keep you focused on the finish line which will be your accredited high school diploma.  Take the first step and enroll today!
