O’Hare 5K on the Runway – Totally Worth It

I headed to the airport Saturday morning, but I didn’t have a flight to catch — I was going to the first O’Hare 5K on the Runway.  I usually run 3-5 races each year, but since my accident in February, this was my first race.  I didn’t even run. I walked with two friends.  
The real point of this race for me was to take advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk the runway at one of the nations busiest airports.  Since United sponsored this event, I was expecting their 787 Dreamliner to make an appearance. It did not. I will admit, I was a little disappointed.  United did bring a beautiful 747 out for us.  It always surprises me how big these planes are.

Did you do this race? If so, are you a local Chicagoan, or did you fly in for this event?  Have you done a runway run at a different airport?
