Congrats to all of today’s finishers, volunteers, supporters, race staff, Philly cops, spectators, and everyone else who had anything to do with this amazing event. I can’t say it enough, I love this event. It never disappoints. It always has and always will be a special place for.
It was my first marathon in 1994 and I have been back every year since. This race always seems to symbolize the end of the racing season and the beginning of the holidays. I love it. For the last six years, my wife and sister in law have joined in on the fun, walking the half, and making the experience that much more fun. And this year my younger daughter joined the party as well.
And of course, race morning always culminates with a killer brunch at the legendary Llanarch Diner. It’s been a very busy year for us which also included the Marine Corp Marathon, and NYC Marathon leading up to today’s Phila Marathon and half marathon.
It’s time to relax a little (maybe till January) and just enjoy everything and everybody around me.
