[Thanks to resident running experts Alex Villari and Sarah Gilligan for helping to think this through.]
We are now gathering your Marathon Meet-Up stories. Did you see any of our runners along the course? Run into any fellow WNYC listeners? Or even if you just have a good story about your marathon experience, post it below!
We have our runner database up and running! We'll do our best to update again before race time, keep tuned to facebook and twitter for the latest. Don't forget, take a listen to our very own Rex Doane demonstrating how you can cheer on fellow Brian Lehrer Show fans during the race, using the special phrase "It's A Free Country"
Are you running the marathon and wish there was someone to cheer you on? Are you watching the marathon and wish you had someone to cheer for? We're going to link up Brian Lehrer show runners and fans for this Sunday's marathon.
Runners: Check out the map below - this shows you where to keep your ears open for fellow WNYC fans who will be cheering you on.
Watchers: Check out the database below, print it out and bring it with you to your viewing spot. Want to take it the next level and track one of our runners online or through your iphone app? Information at the NYRR home page
We'll be tweeting updates and posting to facebook whenever we have more information on this site.
And don't forget, whether you are running or watching, snap pictures of any fateful encounters you may have!
