please check in. did you get to finish? did they pull you off the course? was there enough water/gatorade?!<br><br>
i hope everyone is ok. i was unbelievably uncomfortable.. as a spectator <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad10.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad10"><br><br>
for everyone else, they actually closed the course, citing the heat index and there were reports of water stations running out of water/gatorade beginning at mile 2!!<br><br><a href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/chi-71007marathon-short-story,0,7788754.story?coll=chi_tab01_layout" target="_blank">http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...i_tab01_layout</a>

I was at mile 18 when we were told the race was closed. Walked to mile 20 and was taken off course by a bus.<br><br>
There was no water/gatorade at the second aid station. After that it was spotty...water/gatorade only/liquids but no cups/terrible organization so a big mess of people clamboring for liquids.<br><br>
People were dropping all over the place. My teammate saw the guy who died.<br><br>
It was intense.
