Is it really Spring?

Perfect time for a marathon, no?

Perfect time for a marathon, no?

Bank of America hosted its annual 8K Shamrock Shuffle marathon in Chicago this weekend, and as you can see from the picture above, the weather was absolutely breathtaking–in a dying from hypothermia sort of way.

The high this weekend was about 40 degrees. It rained on Saturday and snowed on Sunday. Some northern suburbs were buried under 7″ of snow but that’s the price you pay for being in the burbs and not having adequate sidewalks and street lights. I guess it’s safe to say that a more appropriate title for this race would’ve been the “Shamrock Shovel“. Haha? Ha? No? You go to hell and you die!

30,000 people registered for the race but only 14,000 showed up.  That’s probably the only reason why a family of Kenyans didn’t place 1st, 2nd and 3rd in record time.
