As I have mentioned Derek has been training for the Chicago Marathon. Today he ran it!!
D has been training for 9 months and ran with The Ronald McDonald House team, a charity close to our hearts. He raised over $1100 in support of them. In the process he also lost 50lbs...WOW!!
Today was a chilly Chicago day but no raining sight and it was a beautiful event. B and I stayed warm at home and met D after with our families to celebrate. We sent him these pictures before his race.
My mom and I made the posters and my step dad filled in with his awesome artist skills. I just about died when I saw the sketch of D running with the Chicago sky line, so cool!
Here is D right before running.
