Sauriol has run 115 marathons and just wrote a book called, "Me, You and 26.2" about how to make it through the entire course.

This year's Chicago Marathon will be Sauriol's 25th. She left corporate America to become a running coach after a devastating accident.

She said she loves helping first time marathoners reach their goals.
