Marathon 9 - Chicago Story*Training*Injury*Schedule*Spectators*Statistics

Huge Race. Nice Run, billed as fast, though not fast for the Mid-pack runners.

I had to stop at the Water breaks and during turns because the runners in front of me stopped and blocked the route or the spectators encroached on the road. I was not able to get to my marathon pace until mile 14.

Cold and windy from the start, it was still a nice clear day.

The crowds were amazing... start to stop spectators.
