Chicago was an awesome marathon for the three of us.
Dev got her sub 5 PR. Reagan got a 4:36 and I got a 4:43. I was hoping to get it below 4:41 which was my PR last year at the Twin Cities Marathon but it wasn’t meant to be.
One day I would earn that ultimate dream of mine to have a negative split on my marathons. Right now I am just going with the “run as fast as you can” mentality.
But for now I am still enjoying my strategy even though I hate slowing down at the last half.
I was giving a thought about asking one of the really fast pacers about what it would take to get to their level. But I stopped cause I know I wouldn’t be able to handle the answer at least not just yet.
