2004 Chicago Marathon

Sunday, October 10, 2004

Report by: Eric Barron

Unlike the Long Beach version, the Chicago Marathon is known as a world-class event. Unfortunately, judging by the splits, someone must have erected a wall on the course someplace after the 18-mile mark. As is so often the case with the marathon, the critical zone is the last 10K, and it does not take much to make that part of the race a goal killer. The best you can do is learn from it, and try again. Congratulations, nonetheless, to those who trained hard and finished. Special kudos to Theo Lacy who had a great race.

Average Finishing Time: 3:36:51.7
