Reader: Colfax Marathon runner depends on the kindness of strangers

The Colfax Marathon always includes plenty of entertainment: end-or-race parties, streetside viewing at the Irish Snug, and this year a scooter parade. But when you're on the run, it's the very little things that count, as Rebecca Aronauer points out in her "Colfax Marathon Dispatch," with the top ten things she learned on the last fourteen miles of the race.

And another runner noticed one of those things. Says Jen:

This was my first marathon...and the guys with the oranges in Lakewood seriously saved my race...I was so struggling at that point but that made me feel so much better! I wish I knew their address so I could write a thank you note!

Did you run the Colfax marathon? Did you watch? What were your favorite moments?
