Conditions: Sunny and cool. Perfect.
Summary: Good, big race. Entire course was wavy, rolling hills (up and down bridges). Very crowded until the 1/2 split off. A lot of races going on at once, (26.2, 13.1, relay, 7k), which made it overly-crowded. We flew into Chicago and Nish and Reilly stayed with David as Michelle and I made the 4 hour drive from Chicago to St. Louis.
