Holy Crap. You're like an elite! Haha. I just got my packet. I'm in the Second Wave, M, all the way at the back :) Bib Number is 50121.

My biggest disappointment is that for us slow pokes, the party is only supposed to go until 3pm and then close down. I'm not even going to be done running until 1:45pm at the earliest.

In your experience, do they close down promptly at 3pm or do they keep things open? I want time to see the Finisher's Area with my parents and friends.

I gave my brother's address in Chicago, so if my bib came, he hasn't mentioned it.

I wanted to change the address to Barrow, cuz I thought it would be cool to hear "FROM BARROW, ALASKA," at the finish line, but I decided not to because I was worried I wouldn't get it in time and then I'd be screwed. :)

Well has anyone else received there Bib number yet I just got mine on monday. I also noticed the wave change thing which is pretty weird I think, going from just one wave to two. so I'll be in wave one corral A. so just as a heads up i more then likely wont be looking for anyone before the race unless i see any one before 7:20 Cause I can't get in to my corral after that point. My Bib number is 1554 so if anyone want's to look for me after the race.

Ok, sounds good. We should all give each other our bib numbers when we get them so we can track each other, and then exchange cell # info so we can touch base with/congratulate each other upon finishing.

My left knee is hurting from yesterday....

if I read the map correctly it's just about a block or two from the finish. and yeah everyone will be finishing at different times so any one feeling like they may be to late dont worry about it cause I know at least for myself, that anyone whom want's me to wait around the finish i will. in fact I'll be chilling around the finish line anyways so anyone can just look for me the only thing is that I cut my hair a few months ago and is not the length in my picture any more.

I'm not sure at this point. You guys probably will have all finished and showered before I'm even done....

No problem, KITHKINCAID. Anyone else interested. or even have any suggestions as to were is the best. If not the best has really good Beer. I'm pretty much down for anywhere as long as there is good beer, and maybe a veggie choice for food but does not have to be priority. as long as there's good beer. beer. ok I should stop saying beer now.

Im down for meeting up! I know after my first marathon it was CRAZY and couldnt find a place to sit down --airgo I went home. So if enough people are interested (family/friends etc) maybe we can reserve a spot somewhere?

Hey Fraggle,

Being that this is my first marathon, I'm not sure how much energy I'm going to have afterwards to do anything, but I'd be for meeting people at the site. My family is all coming down to cheer me on from Canada and it's our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend - so I'll likely be heading home to a turkey dinner. Yum!
