Today is the day of Chicago Marathon. This is a huge annual event for the city of Chicago. The 3rd largest marathon in the world and 40,000 runners registered for the race this year. Those elite runners are amazing, finishing 26 miles in a bit more than 2 hours! I heard that at around the 20 mile mark, it is when most runners "hitting the wall", having difficulty to finish the last couple of miles of the race.
I am also "hitting the wall" right now with my Ferrari 641 project. Did not do anything for the past few weeks. Blame it on work. Because of flight schedule, I have been taking red eye flights back from California on Thursdays. That means I got home around 6am on Friday and head right back to work. I was dead tired Friday evening, the past couple of weekends were spent on just recovering, unpacking, doing laundry and repacking my bag.
I need to get my motivation back.
Because of the time difference, I was sleeping during the Japanese GP. Vettel won and Alonso DNF making the championship race even more interesting. Good to see Kobayashi on the podium. Sauber has a fast car, I hope to see an Asian standing on the top of the podium soon.
