Wow, what a weekend we had in Chicago.  We (Chicago Endurance Sports) trained a team for the Chicago Half Marathon

and for many, it was their first shot at the distance.  So I was

pleasantly surprised to see so many of them show up at the start Sunday

even though the rain was coming down in sheets!

 

Chicago had what

they are now calling a "20-Year Rain" with over 8 inches in some areas

this weekend.  It just kept coming down.  The race staff had to make a

lot of last minute changes due to flooding and tackled the huge

challenge of putting on the race in horrible conditions.  I must say I

was really impressed with our runners for showing up and towing the

line on a horrible day (and a day that was perfect for sleeping in).  I

am equally impressed with all the volunteers and family and friends

that stood out there helping us run the race.  The Chicago Half

Marathon staff did a phenomenal job in challenging conditions and we

all got through it one inch at a time.

 

Sometimes racing in the worst conditions makes for the best of memories. 

 

Congrats to all that were involved!
