Hey, it was the 13th marathon on the 13th of February. Something was bound to go wrong."
-- One of the over 6,000 runners who had registered for Bi-Lo Myrtle Beach Marathon XIII commenting after officials called off the event Friday night, just eight and a half hours before the rescheduled 7 AM start because of snow, ice, and concerns of police, volunteers, and course workers. While it did not snow afterwards, and the roads were in decent shape at the aborted start time, the decision was made as the radar did not look good at 9:30 PM in the evening and the heavier snow was making its way through the state. I was stuck at home thanks to the snow and did not make it.
