More video featuring Mr. Testicles. Man, that runner had balls. He got videotaped everywhere! You can see him about 58 seconds in.
This was shot by another first-timer. Now, I don't mean any disrespect, but when I ran my first marathon the last f*cking thing on my mind was bringing along a camera or video recorder. But that's just me.
This video also features the Boys Town rifle drill squad, which was at mile 8, and you can see the runners already beginning to walk. The video then jumps forward to Pilsen, and some footage of my heroes on 18th Street. She's also got some good video of the time when the race was canceled; you can hear the announcements over the police loudspeakers and see the firefighters opening hydrants. It looks like the runner was probably around the same point in the race that I was when it happened. The runner makes some negative comments at the end about the city which, in my opinion, are not deserved. I think a lot of folks don't understand that the race organization is a separate entity from the city of Chicago.
