This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: Signs of spring are rare, so far. A few daffodils, maybe, but if the lingering cold has you doubting the season’s really arrived, then look to the tens of thousands of runners hitting the streets of St. Louis this weekend for confirmation.
Go! St. Louis Marathon offers several events throughout the weekend, from a marathon and half marathon, a 5K run/walk and children’s fun runs to a mature mile, which this year will feature two 100-year-old participants. (Follow the links to find routes and start times, so you can -- if you're not running -- applaud the efforts of those running by.)
