Run like you stole something!
The Chicago Marathon brings out the fun spirit of Chicagoans. Even the cooler temperature this year did not stop the sense of camaraderie, with bundled up citizens lining the streets with their quirky signs, cheering encouragement.
My husband was running today so I was one of the thousands of spectators standing outside, camera at the ready. After a finish line photo shoot we decided to check in on two friends – both first time marathoners. Triumphant but aching and hobbling they were itching to head home. Pulling a quick sprint and hailing the only vacant cab in sight, I was able to achieve my own winning performance. – It felt good to do something for two heroes of the day.
