Thousands of runners — and their cheerleaders — packed the city’s streets early this morning for the 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon, a.k.a. Pittsburgh’s annual daylong party.

We hung out with South Side supporters and Downtown cheerleaders to scout out the 26 best signs along 26.2 miles where we spotted everything from library humor to political puns to poop jokes.

We also saw this woman who, frankly, deserves a medal of her own.
