About 40,000 runners took to the streets of Chicago yesterday for the Chicago Marathon, a 26.2 mile trek through Chicago’s near north, west, and south side neighborhoods. I headed down to the race to cheer on my friends who were running and take some pictures. It was a beautiful day fro a race.
Here are the highlights from Miles 4, 10, 16, and 26. You can view all the photos from the 2013 Chicago Marathon over on the Flickr.
Smiling at Mile 4 and happy to be running her first marathon.
