As promised, I did take some pictures last night. I always regret not bringing my D3, and this trip is no exception. Hopefully, though, the images will convey some of the excitement that's in the air here in NYC this weekend.
|My first glimpse of the finish line|

|The evening ended with an amazing fireworks show over the Park|
New York Road Runners sponsored their first Dash to the Finish Line 5k to give runners and their friends and families a chance to run the last 3.1 miles of the famed marathon course and cross that famous finish line. We arrived at the perfect time to document the finish.
|Looking forward to seeing this banner tomorrow|
|The men's 5k winner was from Great Britain|
|A New Yorker was the first female finisher|
|Got to love a US Champ!|
|There were lots of fun costumes, including many from the runners' native countries. Where do you think these guys are from?|
|Love this - that's the true spirit of running, finishing together , faces full joy.|
