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!
