Woke Up And Joined a Marathon

We woke up this morning and noticed people running on highway 99 instead of the usual traffic, so Milo and I naturally had to check it out. Turns out it was the Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon, that apparently at least 27,000 knew about it – just not us. Since I’ve never wanted to walk along the always-busy highway 99, this was a good chance since the road was closed for the marathon. We walked along side the runners up to Fremont, then down to the waterfront (at almost the same speed as some of the runners). The runners went through the 99 tunnel that goes under part of Seattle, but Milo and I walked above it. The part of the map shown here is where we walked for 2 or 3 hours, which is only part of the full course.

It was fun to have people cheering the runners on and to hear 5 or 6 different bands that were set up and playing at different points on the course. Here’s some links to the latest news of the marathon if your interested.
