Behind The Scenes At Grandmas Marathon Finish Line

Once again, this year I had the opportunity to take part in our sister station's broadcast of Grandma's Marathon.  My job this year again was to help set up the equipment at the finish line and serve as a technical adviser and information co-coordinator.  It was a busy and exciting morning.  The weather was HORRIBLE!  I was soaked by 4:30 am and wasn't dry again until about 1 pm.  Here's some behind the scenes pictures of the set-up!

On A Cold And Wet Morning, Grandmas Marathon Has Its Closest Finish In Its 35 Year History

I experienced firsthand the cold, wet conditions at the start of the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon.  I stood in the rain with thousands of other runners waiting to start, but looking back it was something I'm glad I experienced.  Like Cathy Kates, I finished the half with a personal best time due to a nice cold wind at my back and plenty of cloud cover.

While my legs are sore today, I was happy to again be a part of the race as well as the finish line festivities as a stage announcer.  Who cares about weather, it was a great weekend and what a 35th running of Grandmas Marathon!

 
Victory belonged to Christopher Kipyego on Saturday morning, except for one thing. He hadn’t crossed the finish line of the 35th Grandma’s Marathon.

He stopped at the front of the electronic timing mat on Canal Park drive, about 60 feet short of the actual finish. The 37-year-old Kenyan was ready to celebrate when he saw race officials urging him to continue.
