Congratulation, and I bet your legs are in your ass right now, and they will stay there for next 7 days.
I better choke the chicken for 4 hrs than run in this cold weather.

I've heard a story from a friend today: supposedly, someone was going to set a new world record (2:07 IIRC), slipped on sponsor's logo and fell couple of feet before the finish line. Can anyone confirm that? Or at least tag it as "BS"?

I think todays weather conditions would have a negative effect on anyone trying to accomplish a record time. I call BS.

Does it say anywhere that he fell, still don't believe you can run a record pace in this weather.

P.S. Those are some freakin' fast times, damn Kenyan dudes.

50 degree weather is the best temps for marathon running as it prevents the body from overheating AND from sweating too much. As far as I know, most marathon records are set to lower temps.

My buddies ran it and I drove around to different places to cheer them on. And there were a LOT of people doing the same (although they were taking the Red Line) Those runners are nuts alright! I'll stick to 5k/8k races and leave the long races to the professionals.

Props to those who ran and actually finished.

No I didn't run it.

Yeah, as the pic above shows, the guy was one step from crossing. He still won though, his torso was passed the finish line when he fell. That stuff was probably durable plastic, wet, akin to one big painted line on the pavement. As we all know, that stuff gets ultra slick when wet.

Here's to you, Mr. "Put a logo where no one will actually see it and let's make it out of a material that collects water because everyone knows that water on plastic gives just as much traction as pavement and we didn't bother to think of that when we noticed it was raining" man.

I hope he recovers ok.

He slipped on the mat that has the receiver for the transponder that you wear on your shoe. So it actually helped his finishing time by a couple of 10th's of a sec.

They have the mats all over the course to record your split times.

As most can verify, I have never wore baggy clothes, my pants are generally sized for me, and worn just below the bellybutton. In the rare event I'm wearing a hat, the brim is forward. My bland sense of style..non-gansta. Maybe that's my problem then?

Anyways, back to the topic, taken from CBS2 Chicago's website. That guy AVERAGED under 5 minute miles. Holy shit!

Then, as he spread both arms wide and his winning time of 2 hours 7 minutes 35 seconds was about to register on the clock, Cheruiyot stepped on a race decal, skidded and went down on the red finish mat, hitting the asphalt hard.

Gosh darn, Alison, you have a very good point there. Golly, I really need to re-think the way I speak. Thank you very much for pointing out that out to me. I'll sure do my darned best to speak properly. Werd!



And FYI, I have another 6-10 years before I hit the mid-life section of existence. I'm still just getting started!

nice time, I ran my first marathon this year in San Diego and didn't have anywhere near as good a time as that tho I did finish. My plan is to run the Chicago next year.

Next year's date is Oct. 7th, hopefully the weather will be a lot nicer.

I can't speak for San Diego, but the crowd of supposedly 1.5 million in Chicago was freaking awesome:cheerleaders, bands, not to mention the neighborhoods.
Mariachi bands in Pilsen, dancing dragons in Chinatown,spectators in costumes.
We even ran by an senior citizen home and the residents had signs in the windows and were waving from their wheelchairs and with their canes! Truly an unforgettable experience.

Congrats on your first, and see you Oct 7th!
