Well, one would think that because it's May in Chicago that the weather would reflect this. Well, you're actually quite wrong. I ran a "5k" on Saturday, and the temp was a whopping 47-49 degrees. Awesome. Naturally, once you get going, you warm up, and the hat and the gloves are no longer necessary.
That is just a start to the Chicago season. This "5k" I completed was good. Boring, but good. The pace was just about a minute faster than my time last year, so that's also exciting. I'm happy to stick with my 5k's and my shorter distances. VERY proud.
