NYC Marathon

I had this brilliant idea to live blog the marathon... then I ran into some issues:
1. I still can't figure out how to mobile blog pictures....
2. You can't take your eyes away for the street for any amount of time or you miss things & people
So for your pleasure I sent three mobile text blurbs... I hope you enjoyed them :)
Now for some pictures!
For the second year in a row I watched from Long Island City. I like this vantage point as it's near my apartment, it's not very crowded, it's the halfway point, and most people still look pretty fresh.
Welcome to Queens
Elite women
Elite men
Some really fast men
Heading to the 59th street bridge
The masses
PS- I am terrible at finding runners. I had four friends running and two fake friends, Al Roker and Meredith Vieria (from the Today show), that I was watching for. How many did I see? Only one! after he spotted me first and yelled my name... I would practice up for next year, but I'm not sure how.


  1. you need to find out what the people you are looking for will be wearing while they run past you so you can just look for their outfits.

  2. i did know what two of them were wearing!

  3. So are you wanting to practice up to run or to spot people who are running?

  4. Practice spotting people who are running... Although Kristen and I were talking about running in cow suits next year...


Comments are awesome!
