Not work-related. On October 9, I ran the Chicago Marathon in 3:05:07! This is a new personal record by over 4 minutes but I just barely missed a BQ (Boston Qualification) time by 7 seconds. So that was a bit of a bummer but now I at least still have a goal to chip away at. It was a great race, and my 1st World Marathon Majors!
Immediately thereafter, I went to South Korea for COLING. My legs were not pleased with me.
As for next time and my next crack at 3:05, I don’t know yet. Here’s a picture of me in a lot of pain right before the finish line.
