JPM Chase Corporate Challenge 2010

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

It’s Memorial Day weekend so it was time for the
Chicago’s JP Morgan Chase Corporate
on Thursday. The weather was glorious,
the usual 20-some thousand runners participated and a good time was had. Work
had arranged for a nice tent, food, music — and a bunch of people showed up
and enjoyed it. Nice one.

This time we all got chip-timing via a small (rfid ?) strip tagged to back of
the bib number. Which is handy as I managed to not stop my time by hand
correctly. Given that I am still nursing a sore Achilles tendon and don’t
train well or much, the time of 23:51 (or 6:48 min/mile) was ok
I have run this.
