10 Years Running: Steve Coons
Not Quite a Pee-rfect Situation
We asked 10 Year Runner, Steve Coons to tell us about “the most bizarre thing he’s ever seen at a RnR AZ marathon.” See his response below.
Maybe not too bizarre, but the inaugural year (2004,) the event was delayed by 40 minutes and all that runner energy turned to full bladders during the delay. In the first mile there was a parking lot wall that became an impromptu restroom, closely resembling any men’s restroom during a major sporting event at halftime. There was not an open spot along that very long wall, and a lot of laughter from the pack of runners, as we ran past on Washington St.

When you gotta go, you gotta go. Enough said. Thanks for the story, Steve!
