For those who have not heard, The 2007 LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon was quite the "steamy" scene this weekend. Exhausted and overheated runners, and obscenely warm temperatures made for an eventful Sunday. But in the midst of all of this, approximately 25,000 runners did finish the race.
So, for all the marathoners who ran in Chicago this weekend, you deserve an easy day. Read this article from Runner's World about how to take it easy and recover from strenuous activity. Or, if you decide to take a few days (or even weeks off) do so without guilt. You made it through one of the toughest marathons in history.
To the left is a picture of our own Nick finishing the race. Look for the guy in the yellow tee with his arms up to the right in the photo.
Congratulations to all the runners!
