|pre-race, we're ready to go|
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation Run to Remember isn't just a 5k, its an experience.
Just starting to type this I'm getting a bit choked up again so I'll have to revisit this post later and maybe add some details.
|as soon as you exit the tunnel, there were all the faces and names of all 572 Chicago Police Officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice...|
|this was the single most intense stretch of a course I have ever witnessed, family members of fallen officers lined the course as bagpipes could be heard from the finish line...it took all of my strength to get to the end without becoming overwhelmed with emotion|
|In honor of PO#9534 Alejandro Valadez|
