Erica blasting to the finish of the Bastille Day 8K

Last Thursday Erica and I ran one of Chicago's fine week-day/after-work runs: the Bastille Day 5/8K. We both did the 8K distance. It was a hot day, but I feel like I had a pretty good run nonetheless (less than a minute off my 8K record). You can hear our quibbles and comments on the race in the second episode of our podcast, above.
