Cue up the theme song to Rocky!

The Philadelphia Marathon races into the City of Brotherly Love this weekend, with a full schedule of pre-race activities leading up to the race on Sunday, November 17.

A throng of 60,000 spectators is expected to line the streets, cheering on the more than 30,000 runners in the field. The number of runners this year is the largest field ever in the marathon’s 20-year history. The runners in the Philadelphia Marathon hail from all 50 states and 43 countries.

JustLuxe’s own, James Rothaar, the producer of the DailyLuxe, will be running with his wife, Teresa Rothaar, in their first full marathon on Sunday. The DailyLuxe is produced by James and Teresa’s boutique writing company, Rothaar Communications.  

Marathon weekend activities include a Health & Fitness Expo at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on November 15-16, and the Rothman Institute 8K and Kids’ Fun Run on November 16.

Best of luck to all the runners! (Go James and Teresa!)
