New York City Marathon Today

Good luck to everyone running in today's New York City Marathon, particularly Rex's son, TallBoy, who is running his very first marathon and hoping to finish in under four hours. TallBoy is running for a good cause...CityMeals on Wheels. Go TallBoy!!

Update: Paula Radcliffe won the women's race with a time of 2:23:55, becoming only the second woman in history to win the New York City Marathon three or more times (Grete Weitz won it 9 times). I'm truly impressed with how amazingly strong Radcliffe looked as she crossed the finish line, as if she could keep going a while longer after completing the 26.2 miles.

Update: Gomes dos Santos won the men's race, blowing kisses to the crowd down the final stretch, with a time of 2:08:42.
