Bike The Drive 2010

Memorial Day weekend is also time for the annual Bike The Drive in Chicago. This time only half the household got up bright and early and enjoyed Lakeshore Drive free of cars. A highly recommended event.

JPM Chase Corporate Challenge 2010

It's Memorial Day weekend so it was time for the Chicago's JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge on Thursday. The weather was glorious, the usual 20-some thousand runners participated and a good time was had. Work had arranged for a nice tent, food, music --- and a bunch of people showed up and enjoyed it. Nice one.

This time we all got chip-timing via a small (rfid ?) strip tagged to back of the bib number. Which is handy as I managed to not stop my time by hand correctly. Given that I am still nursing a sore Achilles tendon and don't train well or much, the time of 23:51 (or 6:48 min/mile) was ok compared to the other seven previous times I have run this.
