|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.
