14 Best Signs from Philadelphia Marathon, Kelly Drive Edition

Yesterday was a perfect day for running the Philadelphia Marathon and a pretty darn good day for watching it, too.   I spent the day chasing and pacing a couple friends who were running and had an especially fun time out on Kelly Drive with the signs that spectators made to cheer the runners and poke fun at the absurdity of running a marathon.    Here’s a dozen and a deuce that caught my eye.  (With apologies, please note I’m taking my Iphone this week for repair as part of the iSight Camera Replacement Program.  Crisper photos to follow immediately thereafter).
