Basically, there's no doubt in my mind that I can do exactly what that guy did in Boston, and hold on for a fair amount of time, especially if the pace is comfortable like it was on Monday. I figure I might as well start doing this, because I'll never be truly elite. My question is, how do I make money from this? I can offer publicity to sponsors by spending ~25 minutes at the front of the major marathons. Should I contact companies I think might be interested? Maybe a company like Budweiser?
I don't know. Basically, I want a company to pay for my trip to the marathon, my race entry, and a reasonable fee (maybe pay me by how long I stay at the front). How do I go about making this happen? LRC, I know you've got good ideas.
