This is near the start of the race - you can see how it is still very crowded!
I'm in the zone for this picture. I also like that the photographer got a shot where it looks like I'm alone in the park!
This one is a bit better. It also has my time although it took me about 5 minutes to cross the start line so my official time was 2:20:48.
The NYC Marathon is this weekend! The first event was in 1970 with 127 runners completing 4 laps around Central Park (shoot. me. now.) Today the course winds through all five boroughs of New York City and is one of the largest marathons in the world with over 37,000 runners! If the weather is nice on Sunday I'm thinking of heading over to the course to snap some photos and cheer for the runners.
