On Sunday, October 13, 2013 one of our own Nextopia representatives visited the Great Windy City-Chicago to complete his first ever marathon. After a gruelling 42.2km (26.2 miles), Derek Wisniewski finished in a time of 3:50:25, putting him in the top 25% of runners out a field of over 40,000+.  The energy of the crowd (estimated at about 2 million people) was amazing. There were entertainers along the course such as a performing Elvis, male cheerleaders, DJ’s and even a juggler who juggled the entire race course. “It was a lifechanging experience and the crowd was very supportive,” said Derek. “Hearing my name called out as I ran motivated me even more! I can’t wait to do my next Marathon.”

Congratulations to Derek! Here are a few photos:
