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.
