a day to remember

October 11, 2009 was definitely a day to remember! I ran the Chicago Marathon with my team, Iowans for Africa. To be honest, it was such an amazing day and I'm still trying to process everything I experienced. I can not even put into words the great experience I had yet. I plan to write more soon about this unforgettable day, but for now want to post some pictures!!

My favorite little fan :) He cheered his heart out! Oh, I love that kid!

Getting a boost of encouragement from my little guy at mile 13!

Last 1/2 mile with the pack of girls I started and finished with... up hill! Thanks a lot Chicago!!!
(notice the slight humor used :)

We trained together, crossed the start line together, and finished together!
(Tricia Haak, Kallie Thompson, Angie Rose-Schreiber, Danielle (Goetz) Garvin, Me, Kris Hoskinson)

the girls running... (I am happily pumping my arms to our cheerleaders!- in the blue sleeves and orange shirt. Our cheer sections were amazing!!!)
