Yes, I'm still wearing my medal, and I hope my husband doesn't mind me wearing it to the restaurant tonight.

If you hadn't heard, today was a hot one in Chicago so the run was tough due to dehydration, overheating, and some sun exposure. I ran with Kristen who I met through Twitter, and we kept up a pretty fast pace through the first half (8:04-8:17), but I needed to slow it down (my goal was 8:30-8:45 miles) so she went ahead, and I still finished without passing out. Hoorah!

I met lots of wonderful new runner friends post-race as well and got to spend some extra time with them at brunch. It was really a spectacular day (there was a massage and a visit with the newborn nephew in the there as well).

    Great job on your pace, sorry we didn't meet at brunch (I had in-laws in town...you may understand! ;-) )
