          A little off-topic, since I didn't see this sign during a race... but as I was driving from California into Arizona, I saw a sign that said "Clean Dirt". The sign is more common than I thought.

              seen at Skagit Flats marathon/HM  3 yrs ago   "this is the last hill we promise"    with a smiley face.   it's funny because Skagit is the flatest race anywhere on the planet.  that "hill" was about 5 feet total, maybe.

                  At the Allentown HM in April:


                  "Your training lasted longer than Kim Kardashian's marriage"


                  "Run like Ryan Gosling is waiting for you at the finish line"


                    Borrowing these from a blog I follow, but they are pretty good:


                    "PR or ER"

                    "5 to 1 you hurl before this is over"


                      San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon:


                      "The half marathoners are already eating"

                      A couple of guys sitting on couch in front yard with a keg on a table,sign said "Free Beer", another sign underneath said " SOLD OUT".

                        At the Allentown HM in April:


                        "Your training lasted longer than Kim Kardashian's marriage"


                        I saw that one when I ran the Philly Half in '11!


                        I meant to throw up a greeting, but it came out like an L to the forehead. The girl looked me like "Dude, are seriously you offended?"

                          When I ran the Philadelphia marathon, someone offered me a beer at around mile 20 saying, "Relax, someone already won."
