Default Chicagoland Inline Marathon 2016

Who all is going? The course has been shortened to eliminate some of the worst pavement.

The reason for this is the construction on I-90. The machine traffic has been using Central Ave. and it is covered in dirt and likely new giant holes. However, that could be good news as Central will need to be repaved. Otherwise, what was 26 miles of a couple of small hills with one big one will now be 26 miles of hill repeats. Bring the pain!

I almost lost it at the beginning of lap 4, salt & dumping water on my head got me through. Evaporates so much faster skating than running; makes it hard to keep up with hydration.

Thanks for taking all the pics!

I will let my wife know since she took most of the pictures. I only took the pictures of the earlier races (rec marathon, half, and 7k).

You skated very strong, nice job!
