2010 New York Half Marathon Photos : Pictures

My favorite image from 2010 New York Half Marathon has to be seeing Deena Kastor storm ahead. I thought she was on course to tear down the course record only to fall apart on the dying stages.

Kastor charged into the lead from the beginning and established the pace for a women’s course record. But the veteran Mara Yamauchi of Britain broke it. She passed a fading Kastor at the 11 ½-mile mark on the West Side Highway, storming to first place in 1:09:25, 18 seconds faster than the 2006 record set by Catherine Ndereba. Kastor was second, in 1:09:43.
