Besides marathon runners and dudes wearing shorts that are almost nut flashingly short, you will find many supportive signs at a marathon. I chose to go with sweet and funny, because I am diabetic and funny. My only duty...ha ha duty... was to be supportive and try to be there every step of the way. The latter of which is easier said than done. My girlfriend who has legs of steel was the participant.
I lucked out because I knew a friend and fellow blogger, Shannan of 'Tween Us, who lives along the marathon route and let me park there for free. This ensured that I would be there for the start, half way through, and at the finish line. In the end I was honored to be a part of this. I got to kiss her and say good luck as she began, I got to see her and cheer he on in the middle, and I was able to hug and kiss her as she crossed the finish line.
It is a day I will never forget and I look forward to the day when we will run together, though, probably not a marathon because, you know it is hard and stuff. Special mention to ChicagoNow bloggers who contributed words of encouragement on the ChicagoNow sign.
