Their headwind prediction is just stupid. Having run Chicago 5 times, you CANNOT have a headwind going both north and then later south. Or as it indicates at least 25% or greater headwind THE WHOLE WAY!!!
To me, these look like the best conditions in YEARS! I ran 2007 (dropped out - wisely) and 2008 (where is was 86 near the finish) and what I could've have run at peak form with cooler temps and low humidity?!?
Like some posters said, tuck in and go for it.
I predict a sub-2:20 for the women. Galen around 2:05-high but not winning.
Huh? I don’t think any one here said there will only be a headwind???
And Rupp won’t sniff 2:05.
