new york city half marathon: photos and results


mary wittenburg about to announce the winners.

well, my second race of the weekend is in the books! what a blast the nyc half marathon was this morning. the short version, i squeaked in just under 2 hours, with a 1:59:41, 9:08 pace. will write-up a race report and post it tonight (or tomorrow). i took plenty of pictures during the second half (post-central park) portion of the race. i only took a couple in the park because of a battery malfunction. details in the race report. pictures first :D

I now have a new reason to really work on becoming a long distance runner -- to run in a race like this in my beloved NYC!

Great pics, my friend!

Have a Grateful Week!!!

Were you the only one wearing that t-shirt? I thought I saw two people wearing them. Totally didn't realize it was you!!! Great job though :)

Greg said...

Great shots! Loved the one on 7th of you taking a pic of the cameraman taking a pic of you! Incredible mileage! Glad we got to meet up.

laura - looked for you both times we went by the south end of the park! where were you volunteering?

Frank, I actually ended up a little before the southern point... I was just after the 1/7 mile markers at 65 street on the east side. Will post a spectator's report tonight.
