    I thought that I was the only spotter who posts that the airport security is "out to get us spotters". Looks like I'm not so paranoid after all. I was truly surprised that we were permitted to snap away at Trump's private jet at Kids' Day 2011 and security looked the other way. Sometimes they are nice. Looking forward to next Saturday.

    Speedbird, others are mentioning instances that did happen, and also cracking jokes. There is not "The airlines, airports, police are out to get us!!!" but only sharing this one day that PAPD weren't thinking on their toes.

    Hummm. I am looking into the logistics of making this work. Might need a ride to the airport from a local hotel however.

    Just got myself signed up for this, now all I have to do is not do anything stupid like walk barefoot on the boardwalk like I did on Saturday. Drove a 2-inch piece of wood into my plantar fascia. Fortunately seems to be healing now

    I'm all signed up. Let's hope the weather cooperates, not like the time at the JFK runway run where we had a 30 MPH head wind while running down 13R! I think it was in 2006 or 2007.

    I am sad to deliver the news that photography will be PROHIBITED at the LGA Runway Run. So please do not bring your cameras.

    EDIT: THIS RULE HAS BEEN MODIFIED.

    The first year I did the JFK run a few years back I ran it in heavy rain. It was great. :)
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    All, I have learned that photography is not actually banned. This is an event for charity, and it is just hoped that those who show up will register and actually run the course for the Wounded Warrior Project, not walk it or stop in the middle to snap a plane photo (which can be a safety hazard during a 5k as well), but I think you get the idea.

    I'm eager to be there for the cause and race all of you.

    Only you would think that running in heavy rain is great

    All I love to do in heavy rain is watch TV and veg on the couch!

    Looks like the race registration has been closed due to popular demand.
