Journal missed the boat on marathon coverage [UPDATED]

Published 9:40am Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Updated 11:48am Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Your coverage of the AR 1/2 Marathon on Saturday was abysmal.

2-3 photos with minimal captions. A list of finishing times in very small type. I assume this was for the 1/2 marathon only. No mention of the 3 mile/5K run. Or of the very exciting 1 mile run.

No article at all. How many runners? Who would know? There was no info about this race in the paper. You should be ashamed.

The most exciting part of the race, to me, was the 1 mile run, with a horde of excited four to seven year olds running at me near the starting line. Were they having fun? You bet.

This was a big community event, and you missed almost the whole thing.
