We took the opportunity to go for a long walk through Central Park and cheer on the runners along the way. I thought it would be a good spark in my non-existent workout routine. Though I have no aspirations to run 26.2 miles. None.
Also, I made sure to give a few yells and claps to those on their morning runs not involved in the marathon. While they appeared shocked at first, I think they enjoyed it after realizing I wasn't going to attack them. After all, they must have felt left out. If people are there cheering on 40k runners, why not cheer for these extras? They are runners too.
Here are a few pictures we took in the park and of the runners.
there were many costumes, though this rabbit mask was a crowd pleaser
I would have preferred the Spartans, but they were fine

After watching an exhausting run, we treated ourselves to CRUMBS
