Slender Fungette Races Chicago Marathon

I took the weekend off of riding to head to Chicago and support one of my best friend's wife as she ran the Chicago Marathon. Jamie is a strong woman and trained really hard for this event. She has always supported our crazy long rides and countless trans iowa efforts. So, it was our turn to give back. I met up with Ari at Buckingham Fountain and we wandered amongst the million plus people to stake a spot out and see if we could catch Jamie running by. I guess we missed her and Jamie finished in 4 hours and 31 minutes burning 4000 calories and keeping a 10:13 pace. She killed it and ran really strong for her first marathon! Great job Jamie! We headed to Greek Town for some delicious food and had a great time catching up with some great people!
