  1. Very nice! NYC Marathon is so huge. We don't have big marathons here in SA but lots of very big ultras.

  2. How cool is THAT!! You are famous by way of association with all those people; next time I see you (it better be soon!) I need to get your autograph! :)

    I liked them on FB. One day I may figure out how Twitter works. YAY, another time sucker I need!
