I signed us up a while ago, mostly as a charity type of deal, figuring doing an event like this couldn't hurt. There were a reported 35,000 participants and it mostly a walk for us. It was very emotional. Many military and first responders were doing it and were vocal about it. Many firemen donned full gear, like Stephen Siller did on 9/11, to emulate his historic run.
I hope to do it again next year. I took some pictures this year so here they are:
The flag line entering the tunnel.
A sign on the wall to make you hope you are halfway. It meant that the uphill was about to begin.
What you see when you exit the tunnel, the Freedom Tower.
There are some other pictures I already posted on Instagram. Take a look!
