Today it was once again time for the
Chicago Half Marathon
(which I have now been running in
2003,
2004,
2005,
2006,
2007
and
2008).
Conditions were much much better than last year’s very heavy rainfall—we were once
again treated to a sunny and clear Chicago sky. It was however a little on
the humid side and got somewhat warm; a few friends I talked to suffered on
the second half of the race and I also slowed down.

As for the race itself, I didn’t run it quite as evenly as I had hoped, faded
a little around mile ten and eleven and came in at 1:34:54, or just under
7:15 min/mile. Not a bad time—I have done better (e.g.
last year)
but also worse. All in all still one my very favourite races, and this year
with a once-again improved course that featured even more running along the
lake. I will probably be back next year.
