Will vs. Wind
There's nothing small about the steps that brought you this far. The hundreds of mornings and afternoons you chose sweat over rest. The personal records you crushed for no one but yourself. Chicago 26.2 is your opportunity to show the Windy City what you're made of. To beat the wind, not run like it. And cross the finish line powered by a much stronger force: Will.
