NYC Marathon Part 2

This first one is basically a "before" picture of the stretch just past the water station. It's not before the race, but it's before the heavy traffic started coming through.

There was a water table and a Gatorade table. The football guys are Automotive High School's Pistons football team.

The people passing out water scream, "WATER WATER WATER!" The cool thing is that you can stand behind the water table because all the action is in front of it.

This is why the water people wear rain coats.

Oops, this series is backward. Should have started with the one below.

It's amazing to me how uniform the angle of lean is among the runners.

Below, the cups pile up. See what that girl has in her hand? It's a tub of Vaseline with sticks in it. I saw a few people rubbing them under their arm pits. I guess after a while some chaffing happens.

That's a medical tent on the right.

This must mean it's exactly 12 miles from Staten Island to the Greenpoint/Williamsburg border.

I'd hoped the one below would show the circus about Lance Armstrong (see him there under the microphone?) but I'm not sure it does.

This guy runs the whole thing backward.

Tsk, Dom and Xavier, please report to the principal's office. Actually, a few people, women too, pulled over on our street to pee (the women squatted between cars). I guess as the larger group passed through the line for the port-o-johns got really long.

They're on a mission from God. (I wasn't trying to take a picture of them leering at girls, it just happened that way.)
