There are so many of us running here in Philly tomorrow perhaps we should have this one central thread for us to give out info and for people to track.<br><br>
I can be looked up by checking for the last name of Josephson. I'm the only Josephson running in Philly. My bib number is 13760.<br><br>
I think a couple of others have already gathered some names of those willing to divulge such info out over the internet. Perhaps they'll list those if that's okay. But only list names of those who are willing to have identity revealed.

Well, I hung around at the expo for two hours and got to meet Mr. Pat and Chasing Amy from Cool Running. I met Amy last year and had dinner with her after the race. She is such a sweetie. Right now I'm just taking a break in my hotel and my DD is Jonesing for the laptop. See you at dinner.

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!<br><br>
Umm, F.U.N. Runner Tracking is no longer letting people sign up, as of 4:30 this morning.

Hey, <b>2oh</b> thanks for listing everyone, I can't figure out how to do a table either and have been playing with it this a.m.<br><br>
I'm also not able to get into see results and our half-ers should be in--I think <b>Big G</b> said they had a 7 a.m. ET start. Heh. Guess we're at the mercy of the technology gods?<br><br>
I am going to call <b>BigG</b> in a minute!<br><br><b>Craney</b>

I know that Big Gahoona, Winter, and Colleen all finished the half-marathons.<br><br>
The email sent to me by the web tracking doesn't include split times and looks like it only has my gun time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">

Wind started blowing harder after I had finished and eventually after locating my brother, when he suggested heading to his vehicle with the heater I ended wimping out on going back to track down other 30s thread participants.<br><br>
But I'm really really happy right now. The race went very well for me, my blood sugars were beautiful and I ran about as good of a race I could have.

Scratch - sounds like a great race for you! I'm glad to hear you body (blood sugars) responded well, and you got yourself a good time to boot!<br><br>
Was that your first half??

Yes, this was my first half-marathon. I had run 13.1 miles in a training run 2 weeks ago, so this was just the second time for me going that distance all in one go.

Cool! Half's are a great distance. Long enough to feel a HUGE sense of accomplishment - short enough to enjoy it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Don't get me wrong, I like marathon's but I really like the half... I wish there were more local ones.

Those late miles in longer distances take on an eerie quality and now because of my run today, I'll need to go back and look again at <b>Moon's</b> recent PR in San Francisco.<br><br>
I also know that means I can't really grasp what the marathon experience must be like, but I have a better sense of it now maybe. Everything about this, I highly recommend it for a person to consider the idea of going for it. To do it becomes haunting in the later miles if you've been pushing hard and pushing in a way never pushed before.

Hey! I just got back to my hotel from the big post race brew fest. This is the first time I used alcohol (a huge quantity) to ease the post marathon soreness instead of ibuprofin. And it's an excellent idea.<br><br>
I looked at the results on the Philadelphia Marathon website and it appears they only are listing the clock times. They have me at identical 3:30:somethings for clock and chip and I ran a 3:29:06 on my watch. I finally beat my Philly demons and ran sub 3:30 down here. Plus this has been an awesome weekend hanging out with all you guys.

Hey gang -<br><br>
Super quick fly by post from me.<br><br>
What a great weekend. Words can't describe how great it was having so many of you all there.<br><br>
The results for the full marathon are finally on the Philly web site.<br><br>
Me - <b>Final Chip Time 3:46:20</b><br><br>
I'm very happy with that. Two weeks, two marathons within a minute of each other.<br><br>
I'll take it.<br><br>
More later.<br><br>
P.S. - I think Pacer Chris should get me a job. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
