Patrick Kuhlmann finished the Bank of America Chicago Marathon today in 2:31:28. Although not a PR, his race was easily one of the best masters performances of the year, especially considering the warm conditions. And some might argue that he is solely responsible for Deena Kastor's record setting finish (everyone would agree that he was at least as responsible as Kastor herself). "Pat had an excellent training cycle and I know he gave it everything he had out there," said Coach Jerry Alexander. "I'm extremely proud of the effort, and the PR is going to come next time around."
