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

The massesPS- 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.
