Two harriers travelled to the US to take part in the Chicago marathon, one of the majors and with 45,000 runners the organisation and experience was amazing.
Amanda Bruneau 4:02:04 PB
Deb Stamp 4:53:21
Race conditions were just about perfect, I kept pace with the 4 hr pacers till mile 22 – when cramp hindered me . But I was back to it gunning for the sub 4 – I would have been delighted to see Garmin tell me at 3:56 that I had reached 26.2 but there was no finish in sight! I pushed on in the hope it might be just round the next corner, it was quite a few corners later…. Garmin clocking 26.8 miles so an extra 1/2 mile…. sob no sub 4.
After the initial I remembered that its still a PB .
