Did we support & encourage each other? Yes

I’d say I have a pretty awesome team! #thankful
The course was crowded (27,000 people covering 3.5miles) and I strongly believe that course marshals reminding the walkers to stay to the right would have been VERY beneficial. About half of our run was on Intermediate (Lower) Wacker Drive and Intermediate Randolph, not the prettiest run but definitely different.
This is my apps record of the run: the orange is reflective of the stop/go/hurry/slow pace brought about by the walkers and at some on Lower Wacker the GPS had me going across the river which did not actually happen. The finish line was around a corner and seeing it brought about a rush of adrenaline that was pretty awesome (all runs should end at a formal finish line). The weather was perfect, warm enough for waiting in the corrals, cool enough to run in.
