NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile – The Pros

Sorry it took me a little bit to blog these pictures, it’s been a crazy year, month week, so please bear with me while I locate my brain. As you know, just like every year, I do/attend the 5th avenue mile, even if I a win still eludes me. Yeah, funny, I know. But,  I got what I think are some nice pictures and I might as well share them with you!

First, the WOMEN, of course.

I think I need to print this picture of Jenny Simpson. Make a huge poster. And look at it every time I touch a donut. Or a cupcake. Or just tatoo this in my hand. Or not. I am depressed and inspired at the same time.
