Guess what!  I ran the Chicago Marathon today!  It wasn't my fastest, it wasn't my slowest, but it was the most fun I've ever had in a marathon! 
This is certainly the biggest marathon I've ever run.  I've never seen as many spectators either; there were spectators lining the entire course.  It was something else! 
I'm not going to write very much right now because I am exhausted.  I stayed in the city until my daughter left on a train for home and then had to ride a train back to where I'm staying. 
I will say this:  I FINISHED!!  I even finished moving at a pretty good pace!  I had a 4:49:36. 
My daughter has a lot of pictures on her camera and phone and will have to send them to me. 
I only have one to show:
This is my sis-in-law and me shortly after finishing. It was not easy standing for that picture!
