I wanted to share a small selection of photos from my time in Chicago, including the race, and my touristy adventures as well – but after two or three failed attempts at writing a lengthy blog post to go along with them, I decided that it was best to just let the images speak for themselves, because a picture is worth 1000 words, and I doubt that even in writing could I effectively convey all of my emotions from the trip.

So with minimal other writing and captions, here comes a chronological photo story starting Thursday morning, and running until Saturday evening.12006548_10203564875842108_3908573300876713702_o 21409485498_ded9b65f6a_k

I had 114 images in the album from the weekend, so I thought this might be an easier way to digest some of them. Overall, it was certainly a race and a trip that I won’t ever forget.
