this past weekend i went to cleveland to run a 10k and to watch my friend mollie run the marathon!
watching people finish the marathon was one of the most inspiring things i've ever seen in my life. there were people of all ages finishing the race (26.2 miles!), and most of them looked ecstatic about what they had just accomplished. many children ran out to finish the race with their parents, and that was one of the cutest things i've ever seen! here are some of my favorite pictures from the finish line:
this man ran the entire marathon with these flags on his back honoring war vets:
i spent a good hour looking for this man in particular. he was finishing the marathon, waved his arm, and said, "come on gang!" and a group of kids ran out to meet him. he picked up the baby and put her on his shoulders and finished the race like that. it was adorable!
