The 2010 Boston Marathon is done and dusted and I have surfed around the web for pictures and photos from the race. With over 500,000 spectators cheering the 20,000 runners I found plenty of good photos.
I watched the marathon via satellite TV and it looked everyone was having a ball “It was just a very exciting day,’’ said race director Guy Morse. “We haven’t had times like this for many years. The weather [55 degrees, mostly sunny] was almost perfect for runners. And there was a crosswind that made it fair.’
The only disapointment was watching Ryan Hall fall behind, I was hoping for a first American victory since 1983.
The Peoples Marathon
I just loved the following battle between the Russian and the Ethiopian.
The Russian Predator
The Ethiopian Prey
At the end the Prey proved to be too fast for the predator!
The Ethiopian Teyba Erkesso won the battle, beating Russian Tatyana Pushkareva, a 24-year-old former ballroom dancer who might be a candidate for “Dancing with the Stars.’’
