Seeing the hundreds and thousands of runners was so inspiring. Men, women, teenagers, 20-somethings, 50-somethings, grandparents... people of all ages.
A few of my favorite runners (besides people I knew, obviously) were: a guy wearing a banana costume. A group of older gentlemen wearing "BEAT OPRAH'S TIME" shirts (and they were also chanting that same thing, haha). A group of women wearing "TEAM SUSIE" shirts. A woman wearing a tank that said "new runner" on the front and "baby's first marathon" on the back. Charity runners, wearing "Race against MS" or "Race against Breast Cancer" shirts. A guy running while holding an American flag. I love watching marathon runners - unbelievably inspiring.
