OK~ Annie is in the middle and I am on the right with my head down. The lady on the left in the green ~ we came up on her during mile 12. Her partner is not in the picture. Her head is down too. Annie and lady in green both did Chicago Full Marathon last Sunday so this was their recovery! LOVE IT!
And another reason my head is down ~ at mile 13 coming into the stadium, I was overcome with emotion!
