Chicago Marathon: Canadian results

Here are some Canadians who scored impressive results yesterday in the Windy City

One day after Eliud Kipchoge’s historic 1:59:40 marathon in Vienna at the INEOS 1:59 Challenge, there was plenty of drama at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, with Brigid Kosgei smashing Paula Radcliffe’s 16-year-old world record in the women’s marathon (in 2:14:04) and three of the biggest names in marathon running, Sir Mo Farah, Galen Rupp and Jordan Hasay failing in their bids for dominance on the course. (All are former Nike Oregon Project athletes, which has been shut down in the wake of their former coach Alberto Salazar‘s four-year ban for doping violations. Farah left the group two years ago.)

For many Canadians, however, it was a great day at the Chicago Marathon–a popular race for its relative proximity to Toronto, finely-tuned organization, swift course, and supportive fans. Here’s how we did yesterday.

What a day in Chicago! It was one of those races where everything (except the wind) was on my side. Literally everything went smoothly. I set the goal of 2:48 back in June and ran a 2:48:00 chip time— a PR of over 5 mins. My friend @k.e.beck and I worked together to hammer out the last 5kms like a team and are both leaving with shiny PRs. So proud of this woman! – – I literally had the best support crew ever (see my stories) so a huge thank you to my sister and cousins for coming out to cheer me on! More in depth summary to come, but first— nap!- – #mychicagomarathon #runchi #chicagomarathon #chicagomarathon2019 #sub250 #runner #running #instarunner #canadianrunning #runstagram #runnersworld #momswhorun #marathoner #marathonmom #motherrunner #womenrunning #runningcommunity #womensrunningcommunity #teamtap #teamnuun
