TYLER-- Tyler held its first Tyler Rose Marathon today.  It included a marathon, half marathon, and a 5K run--all starting and ending in the heart of downtown Tyler. 

Runners came from all over the country, including one man, Charlie Viers.  Viers completed his 117th marathon today at the Tyler Rose Marathon.  He has also ran a marathon in all 50 states.

Another runner, Michael Barnes, turned 55 today.  Barnes says, "I can tell you this was the best way to spend my birthday having a great race in the beautiful city of Tyler. Thank you to the people of Tyler for a birthday present."

Something MUST be done to separate participants from traffic ( 2 near misses in the first 3 miles !!!!!) and what about a pottie or two, otherwise all was excellent -- thank you
