Want to feel lazy? Consider this: There are Chicago Marathon runners that finished the race in a fraction of time that it took to stand in line at Hot Doug's during its final weeks. These elite athletes traveled from all corners of the country (and the world) to zip through our city's streets in a little more than two hours.

Today, Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya claimed victory, finishing with a time of 2 hours, 4 minutes, 11 seconds. Minutes later, Rita Jeptoo (also Kenyan) secured the women's championship with a time of 2 hours, 24 minutes, 35 seconds—her fourth straight major marathon win. We joined the crowds of onlookers in Grant Park and witnessed these athletes conclude the 26.2 mile test of endurance.
