At 11am I met up with Cookie and it was just great to hang out with him. We tried spotting the wife with no luck. We finally met up with her and she had had a great race. Finishing her first marathon in 4hours 31 minutes. She looked tired but great. She had never stopped running and had run as she planned. We later walked to Greektown for a much deserved meal. We saw other runners hobbling around the whole day.
The Chicago Marathon was a great experience and the Slender Fungus is very proud for this accomplishment. Good Job!
