Marathon fever in NYC

So here I am, in New York, to run this mother of a marathon. I've been here quite a few times over the past 5 years for work or quick vacations when R and I decide to meet halfway between DC and Toronto. So far, I've walked a lot, spent a lot on gear (I held back in the last three weeks), including a neat pair of running mitts with a built in LED light recharged with a USB port. Yes, it's geeky on all accounts.

Runners are everywhere. I know NYC marathon draws a lot of international runners but they are everywhere, including dozens in my hotel lobby a few hours ago.

Should be a fun week. I run the victory lap, then we do New York the following four days.

Took a walk to the finish line in Central Park. It is all set up for Sunday. Very cool to walk in the last half mile.
