I promised to upload these pics long ago, but never got around to it. Technically a marathon is a sport, but it involves the community so much that it shouldn't be out of place in this section. So, here they are, from the archives....

#1 Waiting for the Marathon - early morning, an hour before it starts.

#2 The physically challenged on wheels whizzed by. Some of them have mean looking machines, and a lot of determination....

#3 Speaking of determination, nothing beats this 80 year old Japanese woman - running her 10th marathon.

#4 Now for the contenders: Here's the lead women's pack, eventual winner Jelena Prokopcuka of Latvia is second from the right.

#5 The Men's lead pack blew by minutes later. Eventual winner is Paul Tergat of Kenya, third from the right, in a spectacular finish which I caught on TV later.

#10 The Stormtrooper. This dude was walking, it must have been hot in his suit. Darth Vader will have a word (or breath) or two with him at the finish line.

#12 This guy ran for Male Cancer Research. Can you figure out his outfit?

#13 One of three rhinos I saw, It must have been as hot as the Kalahari inside that rubber suit.

#14 While these ladies from down under seem to be having a cool time.

#15 In parting, here's a pic of a little kid cheering her mom on, with a homemade banner. Thanks for viewing!

Wow, great pictures! I like #1, #5, and #11 the most, but I'm a newbie, so who knows which ones are really the best. :)

Great shots. The last few - only in NYC. Well, maybe LA.

Me neither. I saw them very briefly yesterday and came back to comment but the links seem down...

I recall the first shot being wonderful at any rate

It's back up.

The first one is wonderful indeed. From an artistic standpoint it really works, and I like the feeling of waiting in anticipation you've captured.

The rest are also excellent. They tell the story nicely, but are also framed well and visually interesting. #8 and #15 I find particularly appealing

A great series of images BottomBracket. The first and the last are my favorites,I kind of like photographs with people looking out away from the camera,It makes for a very intriguing photogragh. Well done.
