全世界最大的馬拉松比賽(四萬名跑手)又嚟啦!  一年一度嘅紐約市馬拉松 New York City Marathon 將於星期日(二號)北美東岸時間早上九時 (香港時間同日晚上十時) 開跑. Checked 一吓個 database, 原來都有成60+來自香港嘅跑手(老番多過唐人?)參加. 今年岩士唐冇再參加, 事關佢依家正係Texas老家苦練緊出年嘅環法單車大賽. 現場 LIVE 賽情可在此收看.

Elites to watch:

Abderrahim Goumri (2:05:30) of Morocco
Paula Radcliffe (2:15:25) of Great Britian ~ Present women's world record holder

    HK runners in that race are quite old.
    Are they mostly rich people who could afford joining the race?

    I saw one 19 years old male runner.  Most of them are white man from HK.  May be they are indeed very rich.  It costs $9 just to apply and then they put your name in the lottery draw just like Tokyo Marathon.  The organization makes tons of $$ every year.  Very expensive to stay in NYC too.  About $300 to $400 US a night in NYC.  You have to be in the shuttle bus by 4am and wait about 3 to 4 hours before running. My friend said he didn't start the race until almost 10:45am and he enjoyed it.  

    This marathon is also on my "to do" list.  But I too have to save enough $$ to go there.  NYC Chinatown has very good food.

    Congratuation to Radcliffe and Dos Santos

    Radcliffe, Dos Santos capture New York Marathon titles (Yahoo Australia)

    that's really great for Paula Radcliffe getting back to her own form after stress fracture and the disappointed Beijing Olympic.  I really appreciate to her courage and passion that drove her to finish the race regardless how difficult it was. Such never give up passion gave me much inspiration. Wish her well for the rest of her career.

    Michael ~

    Did you watch it?  You can watch the entire race or video clips here again.  The entire race is almost 5 hours long.  There were a lot of touching stories about other runners.  It almost made me cry!
