Yesterday, I got up early so I could stand in the cold and rain/mist/shitty Cleveland weather for a few hours to cheer on some friends and random total strangers while they ran the Cleveland Marathon or Half Marathon.
Here is the sign I was holding for most of the race...
I loved how many people gave me high fives (and yes I know the apostrophe doesn't need to be there. That's what I get for making the poster after a 2 plus hour rain delay at the Indians game on Saturday and many beers will get you). I know some random people took photos of me holding the sign and high fiving runners but I didn't make friends with them or even have them take a photo of me holding the sign with my phone. Photo fail.
All my runners (and I am including everyone who gave me a high five or air high five or thought about giving me a high five in that mix) did a great job yesterday. I always manage a get a little teary eyed when I see people doing the marathon. They really are an inspiration. And I just gaged myself on how girly that sounded but no joke, they are pretty darn amazing.
