Steamtown. At mile 8, melissa was tied for 1st at around 6:05 pace (that's sub 2:40!). By the half Steve Crane was in the lead. My info is from jake at the race site.
In chicago, from the live update: Laura K Turner, 00:58:59 (net) @ 15K. Pace 6:19. Predicted 02:45:36. By The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon. The pace is rather slow with the leaders. The men went through 9 miles at 5:05, the women at 5:50 pace. I have a report that it is already 76 degrees in the shade.
