Okay, I broke down and bought the pay-per-view race on the web... And I love it, since I have no access to the New York city channel and there's no way I want to wait for the condensed one-hour version on NBC this afternoon. So far, the womens' lead pacer is not doing a great job pacing, the men's race is about a half hour old and it was soo much fun to watch the masses start the race.
Also admitedly fun to watch first-time marathoner Lance Armstrong run. Here's a screenshot..
Anyways, back to my web viewing...
Update: Jelena Prokopcuka wins the women's race in 2:25:05. She and the second place runner broke away from the pack (including Kastor) and never looked behind.. Prokopcuka won last year. Great performance.
Lance looked strong
, but there are no numbersand is apparently on 2:58 pace.
And in the men's race, Dos Santos has the lead, but is being tracked by a group of Kenyans including Tergat...
