Default Chicago Marathon Trip Update

Just got back from Chicago, what a great city. The wife completed her 7'th marathon and although not her best time did it in 3:41:02. I aslo got to meet cashbrain what a great guy. His wife also ran the marathon and did finish it although I don't know her time just finishing is a huge feat. Cashbrain also introduced me to two of his friends Bob and Gary. Bob was kind enough to take me for an 80 mile an hour pass in his blown 42 Sonic and a water front tour of the city. I will post some pictures of trip once I resize them. Regards and Thanks to Jack , Bob and Gary from Rick G.

You are right she was a 29 year old woman apparently in good health . She colapsed 100 feet after the finish line and died about 12:30 that day. According to the papers and the offical web site the cause is still unknown.
