Chicago Marathon 2023 – World Age Grade Championships

October 10, 2023

in the chilly windy city ……

Actually OK conditions but very cold hanging around at the start. Given the near complete lack of long training runs, I shouldn’t be unhappy with a time inside 4 hours but disappointed with how it all started falling apart towards the end.

Is being 25th in the World Champs OK ? I think so and even if I had bettered my PB from >5 years ago I wouldn’t have got into the top ten.

And it was good to spend time with my ‘amigo’ Cesar : Here we are at the Expo.

As a footnote, it was good to be part of the Champs as we had a separate area with breakfast and a heated tent. But the post race baggage collection was a farce – they ended up putting all the bags out in the open for the runners to find their own bags !! Not good but it happens all too often.
