Marathon medals arrive in nick of time

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the race says the medals have arrived. They were sent via truck to Arizona overnight on Friday, and arrived early Saturday morning, within a few hours of the start of the race. Organizers are relieved the marathon mess is behind them.

In a statement released by Executive Vice-President Josh Furlow:

"After sitting off the Long Beach, CA cargo port since mid-December, I am thrilled to inform you that the P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll Arizona finisher medals were released Friday afternoon and have arrived at our finish line in Tempe.

You will receive the medal you have worked so hard to achieve at the finish line this weekend! We appreciate your patience and understanding over the last 36 hours and apologize for the scare. Receiving your medal at the finish line may be one of the most poignant moments of the running experience. We know you value that experience and I assure you, it's what drives us too.

Thank you for participating in the 12th annual P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll Arizona. The very best of luck this weekend!
