Chicago Marathon and the Olympics

I was one of the participants in Sunday’s Chicago Marathon but thankfully I was not one of those who had to be hospitalized.

You can read my race report here.

On today’s CBS2Chicago.com site there is an article asking if the problems with the race will hurt Chicago’s bid for the Olympic Games. Link

I find the whole issue interesting…do you think that this event should in any way sway the Olympic Committee’s decision?

Personally, as one of the thousands of runners told that I would not be able to complete the course, I think that this should have no bearing on the outcome.
