Word up. The Chicago Marathon was a mess. Read my schpiel about it here. A total mess to be sure, but I am not blaming race organizers. People want someone to blame, but nobody could Have planned for hot hot it was going to be and how runners were going to behave and all that. Runners threw water allover themselves to cool down, which they should have, but then it made for reduced drinking water. I don’t think anyone is to blame here, really.
Anyway, I haven’t much to report at the moment, running-wise. I’ve been pretty busy, the chilly weather seems to finally be here, so it is time to switch to my cool weather routines. Also, I just found out that Team in Training is about to be twenty years old in 2008, so now I am very gung-ho to do another event with them.
