NYC Marathon - Central Park
I had a great day yesterday at the NYC Marathon. What an awesome race. I didn't run it, but I wish I had! This picture was taken in Central Park around mile 24. The crowd support was amazing. 

I met a woman from Austria, whose husband was running. This was her first trip to America and she was a bit nervous. She couldn't find her way to the finish line so I told her I would help her. She expected her husband to finish at 2:00 so we were running to get there in time. 

At one point, we had to run around the crowd and ended up in the street and just kept going until a security guard pulled us out. It was pretty cool getting to run "in the race" if only for a few minutes. 

When she spotted a runner wearing pink butterfly wings, she knew her husband was not far behind.  I left her at Columbus Circle and made my way back to my daughter's apartment. Awesome day. The city definitely supports this race. The race was already on my bucket list. Now it has moved to the top!
