Chicago Marathon: Done!

Between spectating and cheering in the crowds, winding through numerous street closures to find me, and my actual running of 26.2 miles, we all felt how Miss M looks. We spent the rest of the day enjoying amazing 80 degree fall weather eating sorbets and sipping lemonades on the porch, and taking a "victory walk" around our neighborhood. We'll be back tomorrow with tales of my Chicago Marathon "retirement race".
