My Marathon


Here are a couple of pictures of me running the NYC Marathon yesterday. It passes by about a block from my house and every year I see all those people jogging past hour after hour and listen to the bumper-to-bumper detoured traffic on my street honking and wonder, "what's the big deal with that thing, huh?"

So this year I decided to compete. I didn't win, but as anyone who runs in this kind of event can tell you, it's not about winning, it's about the personal challenge. And it was very challenging to get out of bed that early on a Sunday.
I hope these pictures will help you to admire me and maybe inspire yourself to get out of bed, too.

Well, I admire you, and the cocker spaniel-esque hat even made me get out of bed! Thank you, Hero Piraro!

I love the cigar. That is inspiration.

Did you run the whole thing?

How many cigars did it take from beginning to end?
