Corey Queen's thoughts:

The 2018 Big Ten Network was on Sunday August 12th, 2018. This was my first Big 10K, but it won't be my last. It was a lot of fun.

The weather, which was in the 80's and humid, also featured a nice Lake shore breeze to help cool you down. It was great running weather. Also, Bill Murray was the Master of Ceremonies, so having him launch out your corral is pretty amazing.

This is Chicago, so that means relatively no inclines, which coming back from an injured knee, I greatly appreciated. A weird thing about this race is, as packed as it is with runners, it is a relatively quiet race. Looking at my footage of the race, you can hear the boats out on the lake, it is so quiet. It's the first race I did, where even though spirit is encouraged, the runners don't really talk to each other. This is neither good or bad, just giving a heads up.

Even though I don't have a Big Ten school, I picked IU because it is close to me. But it was fun to see so many people representing their schools. I not only recommend this race, I recommend getting your friends together to enjoy a weekend in Chicago!
