Running across 26.2 miles of pavement during the Chicago Marathon can get pretty monotonous, no matter how great the playlist blasting through your earbuds is. Thank goodness for the cheering onlookers who line the course with creative (and hilarious) signs. We saw plenty of inspiring, strange and laugh-out-loud funny messages being displayed throughout the city this year, including references to Ryan Gosling, “Despacito” and cute butts. If you need a little bit of encouragement, check out some of the best signs we spotted at the 2017 Chicago Marathon.
