The one that was run today was the Rock n Roll marathon, which is run by the Rock N Roll marathon company. They're basically a race franchise, because they host races all over the place. The one I'm running is the official race for the city, just like there's the Boston Marathon or New York City Marathon. Only, you know... this one isn't as terrifying or cut-throat to enter, hahaha.

I'm so glad to see there will be other Sparkers there! Should we try to meet up?

I did it last year, and it is one of my favorite races. I'm doing Route 66 this year on the same day so won't be there, but I hope to do it again next year.

I will be there. However, it is a combination of a visit with a very good friend (and his family) and the marathon - you see if I signed up for the HM I could visit them - and if I visited them I could do the HM. Actually John and I are team in training buddies (several Tahoe rides and Seattle to Portland) and then we became friends. He moved to Philly because of work and I haven't seen him for a couple of years.

All I know right now is when I am coming to town and when I am leaving - no clue what they are planning. However, since we now have a topic to follow here - I will update it as I know my plans.

Yup, I'll be there! Doing it with Team in Training. Just did Rock and Roll today. There is at least one other Sparker I know of doing it too!

Hi folks!

I'm just wondering if anybody else here is planning on toeing the line at the Philadelphia Marathon and Half on November 20th? I'm running it as part of the Runner's World Half Marathon Challenge, which is SO exciting because, well, it's Runner's World! I'm really looking forward to race weekend because a few of my best friends will be there to watch me run, but it'd be even MORE fun if there were a few Sparkers there, too. If not, I'm happy to represent for SP, haha.
