This was the Space Needle early this morning when over 12,000 runners and walkers gathered for the start of the 2008 Seattle Marathon. I was a volunteer for the first time this year and couldn’t believe how many people were out this morning.
There are so many incredible reasons why someone would get up early on a cold and dark Sunday morning to participate in either a full (26.2 miles) or half (13.1 miles) marathon. King 5 TV has captured quite a few of them on their website. But, you didn’t need a “life changing” reason to get out and have some fun.
It was great to be greeted by the sound of the cow bell or the spectators, young and old.
