Raindrops, Max’s daycare center, had a pajama day on Wednesday, and one of Max’s classmates showed up with the same puppy PJ’s.
43,000 runners use a lot of water cups!
I wasn’t really prepared to take any pictures, so I didn’t have any good long lenses with me, but we did get a nice view of the elite runners hitting mile 9 at the end of 4th Avenue near Hanson Place. The women above and below. Edna Kiplagat, the Kenya winner, is in the pack, but hard to see.
Ethiopia’s Gebre Gebremariam, the runner closest to the camera in green, was the men’s winner, finishing in 2:08:14. He took home $170,000, which makes for a nice wage of $79,542.50/hour. Not bad. Despite the freezing weather, it was very inspiring to see the runners, especially the handicapped competitors, some pedaling with only one hand, so warmly spurred on by so many fans.
