NEW YORK MARATHON 2011 MY 3RD IN 8 WEEKS
So my 3rd marathon in 8 weeks went really well love running around new the people and atmosphere is just amazing looking forward to running it again for a 3rd time and here is just some info of the day
The ING NEW YORK CITY MARATHON is the biggest of all the World Marathon Majors. Typically held on the first Sunday in November, it has grown over 40 years into the marathon every runner wants to take part in.2011 was an amazing year for the ING New York City Marathon, with the men's event being won by Geoffery Mutai of Kenya in an incredible time of 2 hours and 5 minutes. Mutai is also the current Boston Marathon Champion. The women's race had a spectacular finish with Mary Keitany looking a sure winner with only a few miles left to run, before fading quickly and coming third behind the winner Firehiwot Dado of Ethiopia.In a welcome contrast from a week earlier, beautiful marathon weather greeted the 47,107 entrants running the New York City Marathon: temperatures in the low 40s and the course bathed in lovely sunshine. It is the largest New York City Marathon ever.It was the perfect backdrop for the entrants who use the race as a celebration of New York and their running and an ideal setting for a great race among the elite runners.
