It’s Marathon Sunday! No, it’s not just any marathon though, it’s the New York City Marathon. As I type there are some 45,000 people running through the streets of New York City. They will experience the party of the crowd in Brooklyn, the quiet of the 59th Street Bridge, the exhilaration of First Avenue, the realness of the Bronx and the finish in Central Park. Good luck to all the runners today and have an amazing race!
Here are a few pictures from my own NYC Marathon experiences in 2009. Happy Running!
Silke chalking the street to welcome the runners on First Avenue around mile 19.
Mayor Bloomberg takes an easy ride through the streets just ahead of the elite runners.

My New York City Running Club – The Reservoir Dogs – stellar cheering section at mile 19!
