We got up nice and early this morning and strolled over to Oakley to yell at strangers.We yelled and clapped and cheered and encouraged the 20,000 lunatics (I mean amazing people) who ran the Flying Pig Marathon this morning. Addison let out a few giggles, shrieks and clapped as the runners raced past her. She is quite the cheering section.
I saw standing on the sidelines cheering for total strangers as my little of way of paying it forward...after all, in October 2006 a whole bunch friends, family and strangers braved the Chicago weather to cheer me across the finish line at the Chicago Marathon. And cheer Karen across...and, in reality, cheer Addie across. Unbeknownst to me she was doing the race with us!
