Last weekend's Rock 'n Roll Marathon and Half Marathon delivered happiness to 44,000 runners whose warm spirits won over a chilly, thirty degree evening.

The Delivering Happiness community tweeted words of encouragement to the participants during the run while the DH Bus was on hand to spread our positive vibes and happy merchandise.

As a follow-up to the marathon, we asked our community on Facebook to share the biggest accomplishment in their lives that brought them happiness. Here are some highlights:
