We got on a train in Naperville somewhere around the 6:00 hour. Once the train got to the city, we headed to the 2 mile mark. We didn't get there in time to see Mere and Kyle though. It is also possible that we were there but missed them. This early in the race, it's hard to sort through people.
It is so motivating to see all the runners go by. Spirits are usually pretty high at this point in the race.
Jackson enjoyed it too. He hung out with Papa alot that day as Bryan was in charge of pictures and I was trying to spot Kyle and Mere.
Such a cool date the run this race.
This is the halfway point. Mere is in the pink shirt and Kyle is hiding behind her. We didn't know what side they would be on and luck wasn't on our side.
After the 13.1 mark we grabbed some lunch and headed to the finish line. It was and always is really crazy as 38,000 runners bring a lot of fans who all want to see the finish line.
We found them though. This is right as they can see the finish line. Mere did great and was Kyle's cheerleader. You can tell by his face that he was hurtin'!
