Chicago Half Marathon

On September 7th Optimus Design took on the Chicago Half Marathon.  Executive Producer Jon Desir, Creative Director Donnie Bauer, Designer Luis Mayorga, Accounting Coordinator Jim Moore, and Freelance Designer Matthew Butler blazed 13.1 miles on Chicago’s south side.  The course started near 63rd street and rambled up Lakeshore Drive to 31st then back down to Jackson Park for the finish.  

We stepped off the starting line at 7am sharp.  The temperature was in the mid 60’s, a near perfect morning for running.  As we approached the turnaround at mile 8 the sun was high in the sky and the lake front was starting to heat up.  By the time we finished, it was hot, we were tired, and it was time to party.
