Yesterday was the Chicago Marathon.  I’ve ran this race before and have also been a spectator. It is definitely much more fun to be a spectator.  🙂  I had very high hopes of seeing all of my friends but unfortunately that did not happen.

The day began with breakfast at Cafe Jumping Bean.  Great place for coffee and food.

Overall, great day for a marathon and a fun day for spectating too.  I had so much fun cheering for the runners.  I did get a little emotional because I was supposed to be out there too.  But then I realized that I made the right choice in not running the marathon.
