On this edition of post-marathon Monday, the headline obviously goes to Shalane Flanigan, the first American winner of the New York City Marathon since 1977, pictured here running with the (then) three time defending champion Mary Keitany.
The silver bullet, Marcel Hug eventually dropped John Charles, and won by 2 minutes
Fellow Swiss competitor Manuela Schar had already separated from the pack on the way up 1st Ave.
On the other hand, men's winner Geoffrey Kamworor (white top) was very much in the middle of the pack, reflective of his eventual 3 second win
Former MIT and USNT coxwain Stephen Young ran a blistering 2:45.
But really, it's "regular" people that make the race
And some overcome far more obstacles than others.
The tribe is strong (and has great facial hair)!
This guy was pretty excited.
