(2) THE MEDIUM LENGTH FAIRLY THOROUGH TASK-ORIENTED VERSION After a years absence, the Memphis Marathon came back stronger and better on the [ < t > here:] invigoratingly crisp morning of Saturday, December 7, 2002, thanks to the new major sponsorship by St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital. Given what Ive heard of the previous course, and my own experience today, Id say its made a remarkable recovery and it has an excellent prognosis for coming years.
Chilly air, clear skies. Wheelchair and hand cycle competitors set out at 7:45 a.m. Fifteen minutes later some 2900 runners (full and newly added half marathon combined) took to the course. We passed the Gibson Guitar Factory, made our way over to Riverside Drive along the Missississippippissipy River, and got a good view of Mud Island before we grunted up a short but serious hill on Beale Street. I stopped to photo the Elvis statue, thankyuh, thankyuhverymuch. Then we passed through one block of the streets many little clubs and bars, a centerpiece of Memphis musical nightlife.
