I was questioning the sanity of some of the runners I saw at Lakefront and heard about from Chicago.
These runners must be a different breed than me. Frankly, I'm concerned about racing and running a fast time. Simply running through miserable conditions (where there's no hope of a fast time) to “push my limits” isn't worth it for me. Maybe I'd have a different perspective if I only had a couple of marathons under my belt.
