Jeff Edmonds's thoughts:

I believe this was my 5th time doing this race, and I will definitely keep coming back. Flat and fast and right along the lake (return trip at least). It's an out-and-back course, and the highlight is still finishing near the 50-yard line on Soldier Field.

Since my last running of the this race two years ago, they've moved the starting lines to be inside the stadium, right by where you finish. This was actually pretty cool and a nice change.

The opening "hoopla" was very long and the race didn't actually begin until about 8 minutes after its planned start time.

The mile markers were completely off. Running at about a 6:30 pace, the first mile took me almost 10 minutes and the second only about 4. This had never been an issue before. I also remember them having clocks at every mile marker, but those weren't present this year.
