Chicago Marathon

I ran the 2002 edition of the Chicago marathon. It was my first marathon.

It was a cool day in October. This was a sharp contrast to the hot summer training runs getting ready for the race.

I finished in a disappointing 4:40.

Since I was injured and never got a training run over 15 miles, I guess I should be happy that I finished.
