The 2019 Chicago Marathon wasn’t my day for 2:59:59. I was having a great day until I wasn’t. I had a solid 30k of race. But everything quickly fell apart. Today, I’ll go over what happened, what I plan to do about it, and what I am thinking about for my next marathon.
I was hoping that this race result would be something we could all share with pride, and I hope that, at least in some way, we all can. This channel has never been about being elite, or sub elite, or winning age groups. It’s always been about seeing what a normal person (who runs a bit funny and was never particularly gifted) can do when they just get out there every day and run. Sometimes that journey brings us highs and sometimes it brings us lows. But either way, I hope that I can show the beauty of running.
