Virtual Chicago Marathon Recap

October 14, 2020 - Virtual PR to real time.

In 2019 I completed the Wisconsin Ironmand and when I did this I pr'd my marathon by 18 minutes.... This gave me the bug to go out and try for a pr just running a marathon. I started out by signing up for the Austin marathon which was about 7 months post Ironman. During this time I started feeling the Ironman blues so I decided that I just wanted to have some fun and enjoy training and a vacation. I switched to the half marathon and pr'd my half marathon and had a blast in Texas. I switched my focus to the Chicago marathon. Well as we all know that 2020 had different plans. I was fundraising for Lurie's Children's Hospital in Chicago... so I decided that no matter what happened I would run the marathon. I completed my marathon training with mental guidance from Stages teammate Nate Dent. While I didnt have the big crowd, other racers, aid stations or porta pottys I was still able to pr my Ironman marathon time by funny enough 18minutes. It was nice to be able to finish at home and promptly take a nap...
