13.1 Chicago half, Spectating Edition

Woke up early and decided to go run to the 10kish mark of the Allstate 13.1 Half marathon to spectate.  I was sooo happy L and CB decided to go too :) We saw so many running blogger friends out today!

 The leaders at mile 6. 

L and CB :) My Boys...

 A Joggler... Damn Impressive
 A lady came up to us and asked what the event was. I explained it was a half marathon. And then she asked (in reference to the sign above, "Who is SHE?") FACE PALM....
Congrats to everyone who ran today!  You all looked so happy!!!

*I'm starting to think I should give up running and begin photographing the runners instead... :) [Just Kidding!!]



  1. Wow! I didn't know so many bloggers were doing this run today! Great job getting them in their happy face stage of the run! Funny signs too!
    Thanks for taking the photos!

  2. Looks like such a fun race! I was between this one and the Women's Half for my first, and just didn't think I'd have enough time to train. Woops! I'll have to remember that for next year. The course looks fun on such a nice day :)

  3. Thanks for the great pictures and for cheering me on!

    1. BTW I think the guy in front of the "Joggler" (bib 1120) is John Garcia from ABC7 News.

  4. Thanks again for the cheers and your support! Loved all of the pics here and on FB. You rock as a photog! Those Lulu signs are awesome. I may need to lift those pics for my 2Q running round up post. I will give you full credit.

  5. I always look for people at races but never find anyone. This is talent finding this many friends!!

  6. I loved seeing you out there! Thanks for coming! I really enjoyed the race & seeing everyone one the out & back

  7. You ROCK. THANK YOU SO MUCH to you, Luiz, and CB for coming out to spectate and take pictures. Your photographs are AWESOME!!! It was so good to see you out there on the course!!!

  8. You saw so many bloggers! I need to check out some of them. Way to be such a supportive friend!

  9. Nice pics! I think Pete is confused as to how to act on the other side of the camera, LOL.

  10. Yay! Spectating is so fun! For shame that that lady asked you what TWSS refers to though. Le sigh!
