nyc marathon: international friendship run, a look back at 2007

i'm just heading out to the friendship run and thought i'd post some of the pictures i took last year. that was a very strange experience because the day began watching the start of the mens olympic marathon trials across from st. patricks cathedral. then in walked to the united nations for the friendship run - a fun, costume-filled, time!

the course was shortened to 1.75 miles because of the trials. it finished on 6th avenue, two blocks before central park. when i walked up to park to meet up with rob and emmy (whom i never managed to find!) - i learned of the tragic death that cast a pall not over the morning, but entire weekends activities!

today, the course will once again be 2.5 miles - finishing in central park. will post those photos when i get home this afternoon.

here is my 2007 race report from the runners world masters forum.
