PR & BQ At Chicago Today ... Thanks To All Of You


 
It was a great day at the 2013 Chicago Marathon ... I crashed a bit at mile 24, but still managed a new PR and BQ of 3:14:48, besting my old PR by more than 5 minutes!!!  I was running great until about 23 and fought it from there, but knowing that many of you were tracking me literally pulled me through ... even though I "stooped to begging for it".  Thanks again, and obviously a full report will follow.  Gonna have the WORLD'S BIGGEST PIZZA NOW!!!  Have a great week!
... be great today!
