My husband and I had trained for 5 months to run in the Myrtle Beach Marathon. We drove down and were ready to run when Myrtle Beach was hit with a SNOW STORM! We got 3 inches of snow and the marathon was cancled. Because they don't get snow there, normally, there was no way to remove snow from roads and it was deemed to dangerous for runners and drivers who would be sharing some roads. Even though offically the marathon was cancled, hundreds of runners took to the roads and beaches anyways. Runners families and local people handed out water bottles to the runners from their driveways and outside their hotels. It was not an official marathon, but it was a lot of fun.
