Results published at Marathon Guide are Gun times, not chip times. What's up with that? Does not matter to me personally as I'm a back of the pack person, but I'd imagine it would be a pretty big issue for thoses looking for PR's, BQ's or official paces. ...

For those of you that don't know (maybe you have been under a rock or something) April Stimpson and I ran the half marathon in Charlotte's Thunder Road Marathon yesterday. It was awesome.........finishing was awesome but I have to say all the volunteers and people along the route whether cheering for a particular person or cheering for everyone were extremely motivating and I am extremely grateful for that motivation. Some of the more memorable signs (although there were sooooo many):

"Spandex is Southern for Sexy"

"You PAID to do this!"

A young lady was holding a full length mirror with a sign on top that said, "This is what AWESOME looks like!"

"Toenails are overrated" -- I have one I'm probably going to lose so this resonated. :/

"You paid to do this to get a FREE banana at the end?"

"Toenails are for sissies!" -- Again resonated. lol

Several men in chicken costumes for the "Believe" Cheer station shouting encouragement and giving high fives to the runners.

The multitude of children along the route giving high fives and shouting encouragement.

To all of you -- NEVER underestimate the POWER of encouragement.

Had an awesome run yesterday - my first of what I hope many 1/2 marathons. I set my benchmark at 2:27. :) My running buddy Kerah (in the light hat) did her 3rd marathon and got a PR time of 4:35. What a great course, with great people to run with! Anxious to try again next year! ...
