2006 Steamtown Marathon - Scranton, PA

This was the 11th annual Steamtown Marathon, in northeastern Pennsylvania. It boasts of a fast course that is good for PR's and Boston Qualifiers.

On October 8, 2006, the weather was spectacular, with cool temperatures, cloudless sky and no wind. But the beautiful course had it's ups and downs and presented a challenge. Our awesome 'Steamy Rebel Supporters' helped us all the way to the finish!

Official Rebel Send-Off Party at Olab's Place

Wes hosted a great pasta dinner on Friday evening, with over 20 in attendance. Good plentiful food and drink, and even a 'Good Luck' cake. The honor of wearing the famous 'throw away' jacket was bestowed upon Nessie. Runners and supporters were primed for the weekend!

Rebel Notes

- First of all, the Steamy Rebel Supporters did an awesome job, finding their way to a number of points to cheer us on! Thank you to Johnny Coco, Sit Down, Shidingo (is there an official spelling?), Silent, Megaphone, Deanna & Grant. Banners, silly UD hats, and all.

- I would not consider this a "PR" course due to some nasty downhills and some uphills at very inopportune times! I'll take a flat course like Chicago or Delaware any day. Weather, however, was spectacular.

- Olab came in with an awesome 3:04:02 PR and must have drank any beer there was at the finish, because there was none for the rest of us.

- Tuckin also got a PR, but more importantly Megaphone would probably want you to know that he wore a dress shirt for half the race.

- All six Rebels finished and we were all very happy to see the finish. The ups and downs contributed to some very sore legs.
