I'm doing it - sort of. Instead of running, I'm in charge of the bag check.
Just to entertain you with a tiny bit of what goes on behind the scenes: I'll get up at 4am so I can go down to White Flint and start setting up, laying out the finish/food area, unloading huge jugs of water, getting a truck for later, etc. It's a surprisingly complex operation. Just the bag check alone requires a dozen people who take bags from frantic and somewhat suspicious runners at one place and then magically transporting the bags before you're done running) to the other end and all sorted so we give it back to you in seconds. We almost never lose a bag :-P
I say "magic" because we continue collecting bags for about 15 minutes *after* the race begins (since people in the late waves are still stripping off warmup clothing at that time and stuffing into bags. But the first runners are crossing the finish line in 28 minutes which is less time than it takes us to pack up and drive down the Pike (and stop for all the lights). And traffic is especially slow during the race since the west side become shared by drivers in both directions. My head hurts to think about all this. But the runners have fun and that's what counts!
