Chicago: Owned

She did it. Margaret ran the Chicago Marathon this past Sunday (10.10.10).

Even in the midst of less-than-desirable conditions, she ran a 3h15m!! What does this mean?

It means:

  • She finished in the top 1% of females
  • She finished in the top 4% of all runners
  • She averaged about a 7:15 minute mile for the first 17 miles, and 8:30 minute miles for the last 9 miles.
  • She’s stinking awesome!

Way to go, babe!

As you can tell by the picture, we were also blessed to have our families not only pay for our trip to Chicago but also join us! We all had a great time together, dividing and conquering the city to see her at different mile-markers, wearing matching “Go Margaret Go” t-shirts, and telling wild taxi drivers that we were from Australia, where killing kangaroos is illegal…Bill.
