How’d the Country Music Marathon get so big?

How did the Country Music Marathon get so big? This morning, as I’m getting ready for an afternoon flight to south Florida for the spring meeting of the American Business Media,
about 18,000 folks are running all over Nashville in what has grown in
a few short years to be one of the biggest events of its kind. Good
luck, folks. (I think part of the answer to my “get so big” question
is, they added a 1/2 marathon a few years ago. The other part is how
easy and inexpensively Nashville is to get to by car or Southwest from
so many places. Then, I guess having live bands located all along the
race course helps, also.).

Here are what bloggers are saying about it via technorati and ice rocket.

By the way, I predict some guy from Kenya wins.

    Running is great – if something that might eat you is in hot pursuit. Otherwise, I don’t get it.
