Chicago Streetscenes - 2007 Chicago Marathon

One street. 35,000 runners.






Faced with record 85 degree temperatures, high humidity, one fatality, and hundreds of runners set to the hospital, this was the first Chicago Marathon to be called off before everyone could cross the finish line.

You sure got around to a lot of different angles, especially aerial ones. Were you wearing a jet pack?

The course winds through some historic Chicago neighborhoods and some that are truly decrepit. It's too bad this year's runners didn't get to see the gamut this year. But we look forward to next year again!
