What a Weekend
I didn't run a step yesterday but am exhausted from a long day of race support before the event and media coverage for the Sun-Times during and after with a 6 p.m. deadline. I hope you've stopped laughing at my predictions. They were out the window before 10 miles! 2:06:25 for Evans Cheruiyot is a great time considering the conditions. He had the speed credentials from three sub-60 half-marathons. He just had to show he could sustain it, and he did. He sure got himself on the marathon map yesterday. Lidiya Grigoryeva certainly impressed as well, pushing and grimacing through the heat for a nice 2:27:17. Thanks to those of you who clicked on ads. It appears I have made 29 cents!
