NYC Marathon 2015

Hardly got a wink of sleep last night.  I often get my best energy in the wee hours of morning.  Ended up going to bed at 4:30 am (which was actually 5:30 am, the clocks having just been set back a few hours earlier).
Woke around 8:30, feeling quite bleary eyed.  I was an hour late for my pain medication, so I took that.  Was wishing for breakfast and a big cup of coffee, so I got myself together, strapped my camera on my arm, and headed out to McDonald's.  
Got a sausage and egg biscuit, and a large coffee to go.
Sat on some steps by my apartment building, and chowed down.
Missed getting a few shots of the wheelchair runners, but I was just taking my time, and felt ok about it.
I thought the first set of on-foot runners was going to be the women, but I ended up getting mostly shots of men.  Could be they diverted the runners to another avenue to accommodate the masses, I'm not sure.

  1. Hello.
    Various uniforms looks like a lot of patchwork.
    It is the peaceful event.

  2. I get tired just watching it. When I was young I might have joined them.


Thank you for reading my blog, and spending some time with me... I am truly honored.
