The premier running event in a city that loves to run, Thunder Road turned 10 years old last fall, when 6,000 people descended on Fourth Street to participate in the 5K, half-marathon, or full marathon. It was a cold day, and most of the runners started in layers. But the farther they went, the more they peeled off shirts and warm-ups, leaving many streets near uptown covered in clothes, hard evidence of a city that loves exertion.
