This weekend I ran my fifth half marathon - the Chicago Half Marathon. It was a great race, although very warm. I think my days of running in Chicago are over - at least until they get more trees/shade.
I'm excited to report that I shaved almost 18 minutes off of my half marathon time from last March! I was shooting for a 2:10 finish, and was 6 seconds off. I'm not totally convinced the course was a exactly 13.1 miles (I started my GPS watch a little late and it still said 13.16 when I cross the finish), so I'm going to count it as a success!
