Shifting mediums a bit, today's installment provides a captivating A/V experience. Courtesy of Runner's World, I proudly present a quick video preview of the 2011 Chicago Marathon.
Although the content comes from earlier editions of the Windy City's marathon, Carey Pinkowski offers a great overview of the neighborhoods and unique qualities that make this one of the world's best marathoning experiences.
More videos will (likely) be available later -- as soon as I can decipher the Runner's World embedding code (which is currently a bit wonky and therefore not working properly). In the meantime, enjoy the race preview and think about how incredible it would be to receive payment and sponsorship for hard work and swift running.
