Marathoners and Half Marathoners

I am getting ready to run in my first half marathon in about 4 weeks.  When I go watch local events, I notice a lot of runner write their first names on their arms so people can cheer for them.  I would like to do this too bc I am going to need every bit of encouragement possible.  Do people just use Sharpie Markers?

Re: Marathoners and Half Marathoners

  • I have never seen this! I wouldn't be able to hear the cheers over my music, but I woulds assume they would use a sharpie.

  • Can't say that I've ever seen this is any of my races.  But I would be afraid a Sharpie would be too permanent. What about buying one of those face paint crayons and using that?

  • My half marathon bib actually had my name printed very large on it so people could cheer me on.
