For those of you running St. Louis this weekend (full, half, relay), let's try to meet for a picture BEFORE the start of the race.
Meet at 6:45 am (race starts at 7:00 am) on the steps of the U.S. Post Office Building (see map) for the "official" Springfield photo! The Post Office is the block east of Union Station on Market Street. It faces the starting area.
A couple other STL tips...
Union Station is open before the race...a great spot for bathrooms (both upstairs and downstairs).
There are plenty of parking ramps as well as ample street parking in the downtown area. Also, Metrolink is a great way to get around, with a stop at Union Station.
Gear check is available at 18th and Chestnut, one block north of the start area.
1:30 p.m. will be the Half Wits post-race gathering at Schlafly's Tap Room, 2100 Locust Street in downtown St. Louis. (www.Schlafly.com for directions).
Duh...Sunday's forecast (not Saturday's) is for a low in the mid 30s and a high in the mid 50s with a mix of sun and clouds. Perfect Half Wits weather!
Have a great time in St. Louis and let us know afterward how it went (or for that matter, share your pre-race thoughts).
