Kim Maves's thoughts:

-This is NOT a race, it is training run. However, there are 3 organized 20mi runs in Chicago to prepare you for the Chicago Marathon.
-Point to point, starts at the Wilson parking lot, runs north and then south, ending in Jackson Park.
-Aid stations every 2-3miles with water and the same Gatorade we will have on the marathon course
-Volunteers were fantastic!!!
-Clif shot blocks at mile 14. This was great considering I dropped one of mine on the concrete.
-Pacers were awesome. Even though we broke out halfway.
-Support staff, directions, aid stations, other volunteers were enthusiastic.
-Loved the cheering kids
-t-shirt was nice and it was kind of nice to pick up after the race to have an extra layer of clothing
-gear check was easy drop off and pick up.
-Plenty of port-o-potties
-post race food was standard, water, banana, granola bar (this one was gross, but I'm sure it was donated), Core Power protein drink.
-Post race stretching line was quick
-post race party was good, beer area should have been a little bigger so we could sit and stretch.
-one tent was giving out flip flops which was a a good idea.
-Buses to drive runners back to Wilson/ Montrose were quick
-CARA staff is always helpful and organized.
-courses and aid stations were clearly marked
-I like that you get a bib
-start waves were easily organized
-No complaints from me :)
