Wednesday I joined about 27,000 people in what is possibly the largest corporate team building event to exist, ever; the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge.

Did we support & encourage each other? Yes
Did we drive through rush hour for a start-line send off – I mean did we go above and beyond to demonstrate that WE ARE A TEAM? Yes
Did we as individuals do our best while donning our company logo? Yes
Did we stay around until the last man was in? Yes

I’d say I have a pretty awesome team! #thankful

The course was crowded (27,000 people covering 3.5miles) and I strongly believe that course marshals reminding the walkers to stay to the right would have been VERY beneficial.  About half of our run was on Intermediate (Lower) Wacker Drive and Intermediate Randolph, not the prettiest run but definitely different.
