As the runners did their thing they were cheered on by an almost 100,000 spectators. Known for its beautiful scenic views, The San Francisco Marathon presented by Wipro is the only race that runs in the roadbed of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s a loop course that starts at the Ferry Building before finishing in front of Cupid’s Arrow.

2010 Boston Marathon Photos : Pictures

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.’’

New York Marathon 2009 : Race Photos & Images & Pictures

The 2009 New York Marathon was as colorful as always. Although we celebrate the runners we forget the spectators who equally do a magnificent job of taking photos.

For me, two Images stood out from the 2009 NYC marathon.

This Frenchman who came along with the Eiffel tower.

Marathon Rules For Elite Runners

Marathon races have rules and regulation. The rules for elite runners are more stringent than for the casual runners.

The rules for elite runners became more clear after the debacle at 2009 Lakefront Marathon in Milwaukee. In that race three different ladies were declared winners.

The first winner was Cassie Pellar who was disqualified shortly after the race for accepting aid – a water bottle – from a friend outside of the official water stations. The second place finisher, Jennifer Goebel, then took the first place. After a few days, supporters of Cassie posted a photo of Jennifer, the race photos showed Goebel with an iPod tucked into the waistband of her shorts. Since running with an ipod is against the rules she was stripped off her first place.

The third place finisher Canitz, a green 42 year old runner was elevated to first place.I wonder what dirt they will now dig out about her??? she better have her taxes in order.

The Elite Marathon Rules

  • Don’t take water or food from spectators
  • Don’t listen to music during the race.
  • And this last one is so obvious, Don’t use dope
