Getting ready for Miami Marathon Sunday

Scenes from 2013 Miami Marathon

Scenes from 2013 Miami Marathon

We’re in the countdown to Miami Marathon (and Half-Marathon) Sunday.

The big race happens Sunday morning, with a 6 a.m. start downtown near American Airlines Arena downtown. The route should bring the first races (wheelchair competitors) to Belle Isle around 6:45 a.m.

IMG_4636We can expect runners crossing the island and the rest of the Venetian Causeway in a steady stream at least until 9:30 a.m. — 27,000 in all.

Plan ahead — for breakfast at home, or a walk to the story, or better yet, getting up early to go out and cheer the runners.

When runners pass us by, they will be about 8 miles into either a 13.1-mile or 26.2 mile journey. They’d love your support, and they have worked hard for this day.

If you have to leave the island, know you can only go east, and it will be a slow slog…..
