    Michigan resident Melissa White is no stranger to Chicago road races.

    The 32-year-old runner first participated in the Chicago Marathon in 2006 and was the second female finisher in the Shamrock Shuffle 8k in 2013.

    Her 2:32:37 personal best is the 10th-best in the field, but was clocked five years ago.

    With several half-marathons and other road races under her belt, White could be among the first American women to cross the finish line.
