It was 88 degrees in Chicago today, so the officials decided to stop the race after 3.5 hours. One runner died, and 302 runners were sickened:

My friend who was in it stopped after mile 17 and has been puking most of the day. Chicago is so proud of the marathon. 40,000 people run it, and a million people cheer them on. It's really sad.
