    As a 23x career marathoner but first time LB marathoner, I have to say I was displeased by the lack of turnout by Long Beach residents Sunday. We ran through many nice neighborhoods around the golf courses and beach areas but had very few onlookers/wellwishers. Most of my encouragement was found by fellow participants. The small exception was the campus, giving me a new appreciation for the CSULB student body. I would hope such an aspiring city of national prominence would show more community spirit futurewise.

    Really???? You are a 23X marathoner looking for well wishes from a community to keep you going? I think that for a community to have a marathon in the first place is well wishes enough for most people. I too ran this last Sunday, but my memories and comments of the day would not be the lack of well wishers and support from the community.

    Dear Bryce Jackson,

    You mention you ran through many, “nice neighborhoods.”
    Come on, man! Out with it! Of course, you mean,
    “white neighborhoods.”
    I”m am sorry you had few onlookers. However, Long Beach residents, (especially the ones whom live in the, “nice” Bixby area) know all so well know that “nice” neighborhoods can no longer be counted on to be so, nice… Boo!
