Chicago Marathon 2015 Post-Race Check In

Yesterday I completed my 3rd marathon in Chicago (full recap to come soon!) The weather was windy and warmer than I was comfortable with at a high of 79 and completely sunny. I went out cautiously slow in the beginning and ended up feeling overheated the last 5 miles. It wasn't the 3:30 A goal I had, but I did manage to run a negative split, get a PR, and a BQ of 3:34:48. It's not enough to actually get in and run Boston nowadays, I know. It's still awesome to have a BQ that I seriously fought for those last miles of the race when I was in so much pain. Looks like I'll need to keep trucking towards my Boston dreams! For now, I'll be celebrating with lots of fun, food, and beer!

Thanks to everyone for all the support. All your texts, comments, tweets,shout-outs and likes made me so happy.
