Forum marathon coverage top notch

Having finally returned to Atlanta and upacked all my memories (and laundry) from the Fargo Marathon, I just wanted to thank The Forum for the fabulous race coverage. With 31 marathons completed, I always buy a copy of the day-after paper as a fun souvenir of my travels. I was so pleasantly surprised to see the huge Fargo Marathon picture above the fold on the homepage – but I will admit I was absolutely floored to see the race covered in three different sections of the paper – including its own special section. This was amazing.

All the stories were wonderful. It was great reading the coverage of the folks at the front who finished far before I did, and as a back-of-the-packer, I also really enjoyed the profiles you included of the everyday runners, including a few of the folks I ran with. I could tell as I ran through the city that the community really supports this race – it was a wonderful first visit to North Dakota. Ya’ll were great hosts!
