Rock "N" Roll Chicago 1/2 Marathon

Today my daughter Brittany and her best friend Justine ran in the Chicago 1/2 Marathon. The race started at 6:40 am this morning. It was a early morning for all of us but, boy was it worth it. She was so nervous as this was her first time running more that a 5K. But with her friend Justine by her side who by the way is a seasoned runner since Junior High School, off they went. Justine stayed with her the whole time even knowing she could of ran the race at a faster pace. Now that's true friendship. I was so proud of both of them. It was so emotional seeing her cross the finish line just knowing she was okay and that she did it. Over $3 Million dollars was also raised for different charities in one morning. How cool is that! I would like to share a few photos of the day with you. I am so proud of you Brittany. Way to go Girls!!
