Marathon

Today is the New York City Marathon, a race which has become the largest in the world with 38,000 running and one of the most prestigious. It's amazing to see such an event in NYC - the race takes place in all five boroughs with major arteries closed off for the runners and 2 million spectators. The race starts in Staten Island at the base of the Verrazano Bridge, continues over the bridge, through Brooklyn into Queens, over the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan, up First Avenue, entering the Bronx briefly, then back into Manhattan down Fifth Avenue, finishing in Central Park. I am watching the finish of the men's and women's divisions as I write this. Paula Radlciffe of Britain won the woman's - she has never lost a marathon. The men's has been won by Martin Lel of Kenya ...

My son ran in the marathon 2003. We had so much fun catching the subway trying to a see him along the route. His claim to fame is that he beat P Diddy by 10 minutes.
