  • Loomis

    My favorites were: “Shut up legs!” and at mile 23 one sign read, “And you thought 26.2 miles was a great idea 4 months ago.” So true!

    • MissUtley

      hahaha I saw the one at mile 23 while I was running and had to laugh. it kept me going. the signs really kept me going!

      • Laura

        There was one woman holding a sign that said “It seemed like a good idea 9 months ago” and her friend holding a sign that said “That’s what she said”

  • Stephanie

    Run like there is a hot guy in front of you and a creepy one behind you

  • Yoga Peach

    I took the shitload of miles sign at mile 6, while thinking about my Ironman I am training for. On my personal page I posted “Half way. If this were #ironman just 134 miles to go. Having a WTF moment but know this pain is only weakness leaving my body”

  • Steve

    I thought the sign that said, “Don’t trust a fart” was pretty funny. Just those little distractions as you’re running it really helped me. Thanks all your spectators!

  • Louise

    thank you spectator – always the best in Philly!!!! Love this town
