Chicago Marathon Statistical Breakdown for Run Nerds

I have to say I love stats but not math type of stats but stats from running events or Triathlon, yeah call me a crazy but hey I love to see where I stand among the world runners but this stat is by Raymond Britt on Competitor.com and I have to say he did sure pump out some awesome stats.

If you wanna dig in and see how was the Chicago Marathon 2015 participants stat check it out. I have laid it all out for easy reference. I am always impressed by the average finishing time and Chicago Marathon runners prove to be one of the fastest I have seen.

One day I hope I am able to run at the Chicago, NY and Boston event. For now its just a dream as it’s gonna take a chunk of my leave just to be there maybe one day when I have quit my job.

  3. ran tokyo and I have to tell u it might dip to single digit.. not much gradient there but the enthusiasm from crowd is there all the way. Suppose to post my post race but never got to it.

    as for Osaka, this part of the world is clouded in Haze at the most crucial part of training. Never trained the whole of last month. So Osaka is gonna be a suffer fest.
