Chicago Marathon

This post is way overdue and so is they New York City Marathon (that one is coming next week).


A few things to share before I start going deep into how the marathon went:

  • I ran this marathon with little training or course research.
  • Chicago, I now know why they call you the windy city. Boy was this a cold marathon!
  • I need to go back to visit this beautiful city.


In Chicago I stayed with a good childhood friend. She took me around town the day before the marathon, I got to try real Chicago deep dish pizza (I’m team Lou Malnati), walked her dog around the city, and ran the marathon. I had so much fun during this short trip, but it was way too short. Honestly I saw more of the city while running the marathon, and to me that’s not ok. I’d love to go back and explore more of Chicago.
