They will have been running uphill a good while when they get here.

Signs around the neighborhood say streets will be closed Sunday starting at 6 A.M. for the San Francisco Marathon.

" Yay!" On Sunday, some people will sit or stand for a long time as the unners pass, shuting encouragement to strangers--"You're doing great!" "You can do it!" "Go, go,go!"--fairly holy sounds on a Sunday morning.
