 You find your faith has been lost and shaken, Here's your chance and it's worth taking, Get on your knees and dig down deep, You can do what you think is impossible. Keep on believing, don't give in. You've got the strength, to raise the win. Remember what one dream can do. You are unstoppable

Chicago has come and gone but what a race! 45000 + runners taking to the streets filled with thousands of spectators. The race took place on a cold 41 degree Sunday morning with temperatures barely reaching 50... ie perfect weather conditions.  This year the corral system changed as there were two waves, one that took off at 7:30 and one at 8:00. The 7:30 wave required athletes to submit previous race times as to qualify for the earlier start.
