2014 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge mini recap


This post is way past due! I finished the 2014 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Chicago a little over a week ago. This was my company's first year being involved with this race. I had know idea what huge participation the has. Over 20,000 runners finished 3.5 miles in Grant Park. The route is a little unusual. Most of it is partially underground on Lower Wacker Drive. There are a few out and back turns, and the finish line isn't visible until you turn a corner. From there, it's only about a tenth of a mile to finish.



I ran with a coworker who is much faster than I. She slowed down for me, but I still finished faster than I thought I would in 44:44. Post race, most companies had there own tent where employees could refuel. It was fun to break out of my cubicle a little early and run an evening race!
