I'm just posting this message so that the newcomers to the site who have joined the 30's Club and the Masters arrivees, are aware that we have a get together planned for the weekend of the Philadelphia Marathon. There is a post on The Race Fora, and anyone who might be in town that weekend will be most welcome - I look forward to seeing old friends, and making new ones.<br><br>
Please sign in and make yourself known - It will be a fun weekend, and running to boot! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Saturday will be the 18th, 3 months til Philly and I'm getting ever closer on squeezing the trigger and putting my entry in. If that doesn't happen, it's still quite likely to happen very soon because early September is when they jack up the prices again, so my attitude of cheap will likely spur me on.

Jill, we are staying at the Sofitel, but I stayed at the Holiday Inn back in 2005. It's a nice hotel, but you will need a taxi to get to the race start. Its in a great location for site seeing as it says, it's in teh historic district. Which nights are you staying? We arrive Friday, thru to Monday.<br><br>

DH and I will be arriving Saturday sometime. We only live 45 minutes north of the city. (I grew up in A-town and have been to Philly a million times, so no site-seeing for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> )

Jill, believe me, seeing me is a site in itself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Not a pretty one, but a site <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
We are planning dinner on Saturday evening, and a post race party on Sunday lunch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Hi everyone! I am running the full marathon at Philly. This will be my second marathon and I'm very excited about it!<br><br>
Has anyone ever used a pace team? I'm running this marathon w/o my running partner/friend and I thought it might be fun to run with a group.

I will not be using a pace team, but I have attempted to do so at a couple of marathons and it was fun...while I could keep up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
