I always send big shout-outs to race volunteers and to the crowd. A high-energy crowd provides motivation and encouragement to all runners and is particularly useful at creating distractions during challenging sections. I love looking for signs throughout a race and have seen several that have elicited a wide range of reactions from surprise to laughter to “Why I oughta…!” I know you all have that ONE sign that you just can’t forget, found hilarious, couldn’t believe someone actually wrote that, etc.
