The 2006 New York City Marathon

POST #    2299

Yesterday was the running of the 37th edition of the New York City Marathon. We watched from a couple of places (4th Ave in Park Slope and in Greenpoint), mainly looking for Christina who was running her first (of many, I'm sure) marathon. There were some crazy outfits people wore. At least two male fairies, two rhinos, a Smurf, and plenty more that I missed or that aren't pictured here. There was also a guy who was juggling (5th picture) when we saw him on 4th Ave. and still when we saw him in Greenpoint. Perhaps the strangest thing was the German man in the 8th photo who was puffing away on a cigarette as he ran.

Congratulations to Christina and all the people who ran in the 2006 Marathon.

Nin hao Tien!
Thank you so much for posting your brilliant pictures from the marathon.
I was very happy to find myself on your page.
In fact, I am the joggler, the crazy guy on your 5 th picture.
If you magnify the blue side of my jogglin balls, you will be able to read my name in Chinese, as on my right leg (well, you have to guess on there).

Since you are chinese, I have a question to you:
Maybe you or one of the people you know do know Fong a chinese fellow, my age from Queens.
Originally he was just taking pictures from the run, as you did; but he ended up joining me joggling along a respectable distance down the marathon. He rejoined me in Central Park south where he got kicked out some meters befor the finish line by the security guys (no starting number, no finish line...).
Unfortunately we didn't find eachother after that, and I had to leave to Germany (where I come from and live) the next day.

Perhaps you can find out who he is and give him my email.

Thank you so much.
Sie, sie
