Survived The Chicago Marathon

I guess it wasn’t quite as hot as last year (only 84 degrees!), but it felt hotter than any long run I have ever done.  I guess only 33,000 of the 46,000 people that registered even showed up to run in the heat and only 31,000 finished.  I can only imagine how frustrating that is to start and not finish.  I saw lots of people sitting in aid tents and fortunately they had lots of water and gatorade all over the course including lots of people using their hoses to spray down the runners.

Not my best run (4:46), but I was glad to finish and not be sick.  I appreciate all the crowds that showed up and all the volunteers – Thanks.  Now, back to work.
