Hi Michael ~

I am still in LA, I did the marathon yesterday morning.  You forgot we are 16 hours behind HK time.  There were over 27,600 runners at the start line, over 17,000 finished the marathon including me <lol>.

My legs gave up on me at mile 23  .   I developed major cramps on both my left and right quads and calf muscles.  All related to lack of LSD (long slow distance).  My chip time was 6:42 something .  My left heel held up fine, I didn't have to take any pain pills along the course.  No marathons for me until August, hopefully I will get more better by then.

I won't be back to Las Vegas until Wednesday.  I will post some pictures and hopefully some video clips when I got back.

As for entry fees, $100 is the average price for major North American marathons.  

Here is an article from the  星島日報 (洛杉磯) ~

本報記者葉宏智環球影城報道


來自肯亞與俄羅斯的男女「長氣袋」,在第23屆洛杉磯馬拉松賽中分別榮膺男女組冠軍,雙雙贏得2萬美元獎金及一部新轎車。值得一提的是,在男女「對壘賽」中,俄國女選手Tatiana Aryasova以2小時9分32秒的成績,「氣」走肯亞男選手Laban Moiben(2小時13分50秒),有額外的10萬美元入「袋」。
大洛杉磯地區2日一掃細雨陰霾,來自全美50州、世界100多個國家的2萬6000多名選手參加了總獎金高達21萬5000美元的洛杉磯馬拉松賽。可喜的是,今年的比賽並未傳出任何死亡悲劇,只有73名選手受傷,其中23人送院就醫。此外,在自行車活動中,也發生選手擦撞事故,導致多人擦傷、一人送醫急救,所幸生命並無大礙。
今年活動不但熱烈,且分數個場次進行,大會為提倡多元文化交流與發現洛杉磯兩大精神,邀請到日本太鼓演出、歌手Randy Newman演唱我愛洛杉磯,及福音歌手合唱等。清晨5時45分,在洛杉磯Coliseum先舉行自行車、殘障自行車賽等項目,萬人馬拉松賽則在8時20分登場。
馬拉松賽莊嚴隆重,分別在國歌與聖火點燃儀式中登場,洛市警局(LAPD)警長布拉登(William Bratton)親自為特警隊(SWAT)點燃聖火,以紀念2月7日在聖費爾度谷遇害的員警西蒙斯。
現年28歲的Tatiana Aryasova產後復出,表現沒有令人失望。在大會為女選手提供19分38秒的「優惠」制度下,她的成績不但贏得女子組冠軍,同時也打敗男子組第一名,因此贏得[Banco Popular挑戰」的10美元額外獎金。男子組今年仍由連續9年第一的肯亞隊伍把持,Laban Moiben順利蟬聯冠軍寶座。
活動為預防06年一名50歲選手於賽程中因心臟病發死亡的悲劇,今年特別設立總計26個飲水補給站服務,並恢復緊急心肺按摩器急救設施。
馬拉松賽從荷里活的環球影城出發,沿途行經荷里活碗、荷里活大道、韓國城、世博公園、Coliseum體育場、諾基亞劇院等名勝與地標,終點為洛市中央圖書館,多年來享有沿途風景秀麗與人文建築豐富的美譽,同時也是排名為世界第七大、全美四大業餘長跑賽之一。

hi David ~

that's glad to get your good new here
it is really meaning ful to finish marathon with such physical condition so far...


That Russian Woman is really awesome and even "beated" the male champion...
Hard to imagine such timing and result ...
However, I have seen the result in this website http://www.adventure-marathon.com/Los-Angeles-Marathon-results.aspx
it said woman champion got 2:29, while male was 2:13.
does the rule set that male have to add extra 20mins before comparing with the female in 男女「對壘賽」?  

Whatever,  standard is really high in LA Marathon ~

I am back in Vegas. The quads are still very sore!!  And I have to walk up and down the stairs in my house.

Michael ~  Elite female runners always have a head start of 15 to 20 minutes before the elite male runners.  Most of the time, the elite males would catch up to the females half way point.  But at LAM on Sunday, that wasn't the case, the elite female actually won it overall and got the priced money.

I will post some pictures in my album when I settle down.

Take care man ~ actually I also need to walk up and down stairs in my flat ~~
I get it now ~ congratuation to that Russian woman. She is really great ~

Actually I have checked the result of LA M and I have found your name there

according to the timing u've made, it looks like you were in the trouble in final 12.2km (took about 2:30). but anyway that's good to be one of those finishers.

Also, unlike tough cut off rule in Hong Kong, that's really good in LA Mara by allowing most of the participants to finish the run unless they chose to give up
(I do appreciate the one who made 12 hrs carry on towards the finish line).

Michael ~

You are right.  I was basically doing cramps management the last 12 to 15 km, stretching every 5 minutes or so.  I blammed myself did not do any long runs.  I still have plantar fasciitis on my left heel.  Amazingly, it didn't bother me.  My physio therapist warned me not to push it during the marathon, otherwise it will never heal.  My usual pace is 9:30 to 10:30 min/mile.  I think I was doing like 12:30 min pace most of the time.  I am happy with it.  I am not competitive runner anymore.  My time has passed.  I am a recreation runner nowadays.

LAM is always walker friendly.  There is no time limit.  Even you finish the next day, someone from the organization will always wait for you at the finish line to give you your deserved medal.  But of course, after certain time, the course is opened to traffic again and the runner/walker has to use the sidewalk and obey all the traffic signals.

HK is different, the course involves the freeways, tunnels, and bridges, there is no possible way they will let the runners continue to run on those after their time is up.

The weather was good this year.  Last year it was like over 30C, I had to go inside a store to buy an ice cold popsicle to suck at mile 18.

As for the 12 hours runner/walker.  Did you mean him? http://video.knbc.com/player/?id=225294.  What an inspiration!!

I have checked his time, he finished with 11hrs sth and there were 6 ppl (5 male 1 female) who were behind him. That's really amazing for a sumo to join marathon .

For me ~ running is for health and entertainment. I would try to keep going regardless how my physical condition would be ( if I could ).
