Gebre Gebremariam of Ethiopia and Edna Kiplagat of Kenya Win!

WINS...the New York City Marathon today that is.  The NYC marathon has been run every year since 1970.  I have deferred my entry to run in the marathon for the last 2 years.  I have been recovering from having plantar fasciitis in both feet.  I will have to run the marathon next year or I will lose my spot.  I ran the New Orleans Half Marathon February 2010 and have pretty much stopped running since that time.  But I miss running with all of my friends...I have friends running the NYC marathon race today, so I hope they all finish well.

Even one of the rescued Chilean miners Edison Pena was running the New York City Marathon today.  He has never even run a marathon before, but was running underground while trapped in the mines of Chili.  He would even strap a crate on his back to make it harder.  So I wish the best of luck to Edison as well..I hope he makes it.


  1. Training for a marathon while trapped in a mine. Now, that is crazy.
