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!
Official NYRR’s Fifth Avenue Mile Results. NYRR’s Photos here.
First, the WOMEN, of course.
Jenny Simpson with a lead like I have NEVER seen. AMAZING!!
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.
then, THE MEN!!!
this was the craziest thing EVER> Nick Willis and an amazing lead to, which seriously, I had never seen at the mile, AND PUMPING HIS ARMS FOR PEOPLE TO CHEER. Like I’d do… it made me so happy that he was so happy and relaxed at A MILE RACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then Garrett Heath in green for 2nd a a crazy three way fight for 3rd place, which was this close into the tape too! But Lagat HAD to place… soooo…
Nick Symmonds, 17 out of 20 with a 4:00.1 mile. HAWT
and Pablo Solares who JUST GOT ENGAGED TO SHANNON ROWBURY! closing the race, with a 4:07.
See that? My hand AND his hand?? there’s a chance I am crazy fast now! I also got one from Jenny so I think I am set!
In case you live in a a box, that’s Olympian medalist, Leo Manzano!
Can I hold your bag, Susan Kuijken??
and my all time favorite, biggest crush ever, Nick… even if I am now a married runner….
Well, I run this race and will share soon… a little preview? yes, here:
more soon, I promise!
Wow wow wow! Yeah, I need to print out that photo of Jenny Simpson and post it on my refrigerator and on the refrigerator at work, and on the exit from my workplace when I have a yearning to go next door to 7 Eleven…..
I am not even sure that’d do it for me. I’d have to surgically stitch my mouth, forever.
Ha ha! I just had an urge to go to 7 Eleven for popcorn and was just about to find a way to rationalize it when I remembered that Jenny Simpson photo. That just might get me through the day at least….
Jenny’s Simpson’s abs are magic: they stop us from eating! Let’s see in a week!
Hmm not sure my comment went through. But Jenny’s form is amazing. I want to look like her midstride!
Wonderful… Leo Manzano is great! Maybe you’ll win this next year eh?
I hope so!! 😉
This post made me so happy. I’m such a fangirl. Thanks for sharing!
