Spectating Running Bloggers at the Ravenswood Run 5k

The Ravenswood Run is my neighborhood's main race of the season, so I decided to go up and spectate (and take pictures and video) of the race. I love this race, because it is the home of my 5k PR and this year as a bonus, the race ran right in front of the Chicago Brauhaus and the rest of Lincoln Square. Anyway, I got to see some neighbors run as well as Chicago Running Bloggers and world class runner Tera Moody!

I took two videos. The first one is the first 15 minutes of all runners who ran past mile 2 and the second videos is a shorter video of runners from 15+ minutes onward They were taken in front of the Brauhaus at just past mile 2:
Video 1 (15 minutes of Leaders) :

Video 2 (rest of the runners):

I also got several pictures:

    2. Very cool that you found your husband. Sorry I didn't see you, there were so many people whizzing by me so fast. I think several runners they thought I was the official race photographer or something, as they would strike a pose for me! :-)
