    I am running in this on Apr 24. I want to get a hotel room on Apr 23-24 near the start line which is at Centennial park. Any recommendations? Closer the better. Also, gonna go party that night (nothing to crazy, me and the misses), so if anyone wants to meet up for a few beers, tell me where to be!

    The Holiday Inn on West End Ave. is right across the street from Centennial Park. The address should be in the 2600 block or so.

    I'm staying at the Sheraton, but I think it's sold out. They have shuttles to the starting line if you park at the stadium. Are you not taking advantage of the free concert that night? I have no idea who is playing, but will probably check it out.

    Good luck finding a room... It looks like everything is full. You might try The Hutton Hotel. Looks like they still have some rooms.

    Nah, I'm running the half. I'm hoping to finish in under 1:40. Keep checking hotels. There will be some cancelations between now and then. If my wife weren't coming, you could bunk with me, but I need someone to rub me down after the race and I'd rather my wife do that than you. No offense.

    Its all good. My Aunt lives in Symrna, bout 25 miles from start line so I will prob stay there then drive to Staduim and catch a shuttle. 140 is pretty good. I am shooting for 315-325 in the full. All depends how I hold up at the end.
