Chicago Marathon

Last weekend, Chad and I met his sisters, Shanna and Cherise, and Shanna's husband Micah in Chicago. Shanna was there to run the Chicago marathon and we were her cheer squad! In case you didn't know how long a marathon actually is...try to wrap your mind around running 26.2 miles!!! Shanna did it and we are all so proud of her!

On Saturday we went to the expo where Shanna received her running number and packet. (Pictured above are Shanna and Micah.) The race was on Sunday.

Sibling shot!

Shanna and Micah post-race. Doesn't she look great for just running 26.2 miles?!?
Chad and Micah both ran with Shanna at different parts of the race to encourage her to keep going. Both of them planned on doing about 3 miles each with her, but Chad ended up running 6 miles and Micah ran 8!
After the race, we were walking back to the hotel and stopped to enjoy the Chicago Bean. Above is Cherise and me.
