LINDSEY WASSON / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Drew Polley, 28, of Pullman, Wash., is cheered on by half marathon runners as he passes them on the Alaskan Way Viaduct past the marathon mile 24 during the annual Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in Seattle on Saturday, June 21, 2014. "It was really fun for about the first 20 miles and then a gorilla jumped on my back," Polley said after the race. "The crowd was amazing. I got kind of fired up." Over 18,000 people from all 50 states and 21 foreign countries registered to participate in Seattle's largest marathon and half marathon event, with charity participants raising over $700,000 total. Devon Yanko, 31, of San Anselmo, Calif. was the first female finisher at 2:51:18. Yon Yilma, 25, of Edmonds, finished second at 2:30:52, while Alexander Rockhill, 19, of Seattle finished third at 2:35:17.
