Pictures and Photos have been streaming in from ABN AMRO Rotterdam marathon 2011. Unlike previous years when the weather was horrendous, this years it was a no rain race.
The so-called “Magnificent Seven” Vincent Kipruto, Eliud Kiptanui, Wilson Chebet, Gilbert Kirwa (all Kenya), Feyisa Lilesa, Getu Feleke and Chala Dechase (all Ethiopian). They were tipped to break the world record! Image courtesy of Guus Krol @ Flicker.
It was a rainy 2011 Honda L.A marathon but the rain was not stopping anyone especially the photographers. The following are my favorite pictures from 2011 L.A marathon.
