October Marathons

The weekend of October 6-7 found several SEMO area runners at two of the nation's most popular marathons.  The larger contingent were next door in Illinois for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.  One of the nation's premier marathons, the local group were among over 50,000 finishers.  Led by Joe Windeknecht's 3:05:57, locals posted impressive times and multiple PRs.
