Race 33 of 40 - Heroes on Hines

Heroes on Hines Half Marathon October 5, 2013

This half marathon was really, really special for a couple reasons.
Shortly after the column in the Free Press about my 40 races, a guy I've chatted with a bit on Twitter offered to pay for one of my race entry fees. He just said that he was inspired by what I was doing and wanted to help. How nice is that?!
So I decided that if someone else was paying, I needed to run a race that meant something. So I chose the Heroes on Hines half marathon. Proceeds from this race will be used to build and maintain a monument that honors fallen first responders.
Mad, mad respect for the firefighter that ran the entire race in full gear.
