CHAMPAIGN -- One man will be focusing on his Twitter followers while running this year's Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon. Mark Palmer is training for his sixth run in the half-marathon.

This year, he decided to shake things up. He will tweet, take pictures and entertain his followers. Palmer says he got the idea from other runners who've done the same thing.

Palmer is doing the I-Challenge, so he's running the half-marathon and 5K. If you want to tweet him, his handle is @palmerlaw.
