Jake’s Journal: My 26.2 miles of pictures at NYC Marathon


Start 310XT Copy of Medal It's been a crazy year, whether I was working at the Tour of California and Tour de France or participating in Bike MS and two local marathons, so I hadn't been shy about prefacing my preparation for this month's New York City Marathon with a disclaimer: I'm running it for fun. I told people I wouldn't even think about average pace or personal bests, but it's hard to completely ignore the stats when you have 40 customizable data fields on your Forerunner 310XT. But I knew that this wasn't the time to try to qualify for Boston (my legs would have staged a mutiny had I thought otherwise), and I realized I've struggled to convey the spectators (and spectacle) that surround New York's annual five-borough fanfare. So I strapped a GoPro HD camera to my chest and let the pictures do the talking. From the three-hour wait on Staten Island to the five-mile walk back to my hotel room, I used my GoPro to snap action pics of milestones and memorable moments throughout the 3 hours, 48 minutes and 30 seconds along the way. These are just a sampling – I have another post planned to highlight a few new friends – and you can consider yourself lucky. If a picture is worth a thousand words, you're saving yourself from listening to a lot of my rambling.
