I saw the sign.

It’s Thursday (already!?) and the folks at the Runner’s Lounge asked us (as part of their weekly TIART project), Which sign would you most like to see during a race?

But BESIDES that.. there is another sign I hold near and dear to my marathoning heart. It’s a sign that has appeared at all four of my marathons. It’s big. It’s impossible to miss. And the sign is always flanked by my parents – the best cheerleaders in the universe

Back in April of 2007 a team of marathon engineers created a sign using an old bedsheet and spraypaint. Witness the birth of the sign…
