USWNT soccer stars Hope Solo, Alex Morgan and Abby Wambach came to my hometown today to run part of the 2011 Chicago Marathon. And serve as celebrity, guests? hosts? I don’t know what title one gives to celebrities in marathons. Anyways, here are some photos, and tweets from it.

Today was a great day! 1st marathon, and now I understand the reasoning why 45,000 runners train for this, simply amazing.

Beat the sun this morning,ready for #chimarathon! So inspiring being surrounded by 45k runners. #fb
