Kim Maves's thoughts:

I think this is my new favorite race.

The course was different from others I have ran, I loved finishing on Soldier Field and running through the tunnel and being on the jumbotron. However, that pails in comparison to the honoring of those who have fallen and the active duty service members who passed out medals. I was a puddly mess at the start, from Taps, to mentioning names of those who have fallen, telling the story of the lady, and mentioning those service members in the corrals. It was especially emotional because a friend is currently in Afghanistan.

Back to the race, the medal is beautiful. Parking was a breeze. Post race food was standard. Icing area was perfect. I didn't want to wait in line to get stretched. Start corrals provided less congestion, even though I was pushed back. I was still able to run at my goal pace. Shirt was standard, I liked that it wasn't a Bears theme. I like the reusable bag, always a plus for me.

Only complaint is I didn't think there was enough hydration at the end of the race.

Perfect for a PR!
