I am attempting to break the Guinness World Record for, "longest scarf knit whilst running a marathon".

I will make the attempt at the Kansas City Marathon October 19th, 2013.

I need your help. -David

Knitting and Running Video Sept. 9th

This is what it looks like. Currently for a length like this I have the excess scarf secured to my bag so that it doesn't flop around my legs. I also look up more when the route is unfamiliar or busy. The needles shown here are 19mm, nearly twice the size of the ones I will use.
