In a couple weeks, my friends and I are participating in the R.O.C. race, and we need some kind of group costume! Something easy to put together, that we can still run around and get wet and muddy in. Any ideas? We'll be 7 or 8 people, in our 30s if it matters. Running in NYC in September, so it will still probably be a million degrees outside. [more inside]
I am planning on running a marathon sometime between spring 2015 and August 2016 with lots of flexibility in time frame. I need to choose a marathon and it must be ithin driving distance of Seattle. This will be my first marathon so I do want some support - I want a timing chip - and I want a photographer. I'm not sure what else I want in terms of crowds, etc. If you have experience with marathons in this area that you can share, please do.

Hello. I am signed up to run the Manchester 10 k on 26 May. I have never run any kind of race in my life before, and am REALLY „not sporty“ though I am used to hiking/cycling. I have not, to put it mildly, trained as much as I should. By now I can jog for 2.5 – 3 km in half an hour, and have mostly „trained“ on the treadmill rather than outdoors (I strained a muscle running outdoors and feel like it’s my muscles and joints that are most struggling with the running rather than anything „cardio“ related as such. So my actual question: is it still possible to get myself into a condition where I can get round the route without walking it and without injuring myself (too badly) in the remaining time?

Hi all, I am helping to organize a charity walk/run in Quebec and we are looking for a solution to print a large quality version of the route to have around at the race site. Do you know of any way to do this? Screenshots of a googlemap printed on legal paper are still less readable than I would like. Thanks for your help! [more inside]
