I had a lot of fun cheering for all of the runners at this year’s Twin Cities Marathon. I wasn’t sure which of my friends were actually running, so I was caught by surprise as a few of them ran past. My wife said I looked scary, but I was dressed to be riding my bike on what started in the sub-40’s temp wise and warmed up quite nicely.
I met up with my friend Brad, who also happens to be the regional coordinator for Team World Vision. We did a lot of cheering for the Team World Vision folks. Brad brought a bullhorn which you heard right before mile 15 and 26. He was pretty funny on the bullhorn and most of the runners really enjoyed his cheering and antics. Several people requested he cheer for certain runners! At mile 26 a woman actually stopped running and did a somersault for us!
We cheered for pretty much everyone who went by and I cheered specifically for the friends that I saw, but the Team World Vision – orange jersey stands out and so I was able to get some good pictures of them. Below I created short video:
