Flashback Friday - Chicago Marathon 2012, October 2012

Trained for 4 months, got tonsillitis two days before the race, went to the doctors, drugged myself up, ran a 03:37:38 PR.

Probably the proudest I’ve ever felt.

I also wrote a piece for Men’s Running UK about it: My Chicago Marathon: No Weapon Sharper Than Will

With that, I should add - good luck to all those running Chicago Marathon this Sunday! It’s a truly fantastic race!
