Approximately 50,000 runners took to the streets of New York Citys five boroughs Sunday for the citys 40th marathon since the race expanded from Central Park to being the worlds largest block party. The sunny fall weather brought out an even greater number of spectators, who eagerly lined the blocks for a glimpse of the wheelchair racers, elites and weekend warriors. Heres a look at a few of them, all of whom conceded that its far easier to watch a marathon than to run one.Ciara OSullivan, Jeannine Marotta, Elizabeth Marotta and Jon BarrattespnW: What brought you out today?Jeannine Marotta: Were here for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, an amazing cause. Were here to support the runners and cyclists.Ciara OSullivan: Im just a volunteer.Elizabeth Marotta: Im here for moral support! I live in the area [Park Slope] and we come every year.Jeannine Marotta: Will Reeve is running this year in honor of his parents, so were here to support him too.Jon Barratt: Did you see that guy go by? Look how fast hes going!Elizabeth Marotta: Thats insane.Kevin Collier and Dan FinklangFinklang: My wife is running today. This is her 30th marathon.espnW: What?Finklang: Yeah, shes incredible. Were from St. Louis.Collier: My girlfriend is running it today, and Im a running coach in St. Louis. So the people that are running from St. Louis, were cheering for them. I think in our group theres five or six people running today.espnW: Whats your strategy for spectating today?Collier: Were going to watch the elites here (in Brooklyn), then well head up to mile 16.Finklang: When they come off the bridge, its really loud there. Theres so much energy.espnW: From a coaching perspective, what are the best and worst parts of the race? Collier: I think for many people, this will be their first major race where theyve ran with this many people and they are used to; I think their big thing is theyre going to get overwhelmed with the crowd support. I remember when I ran Chicago, it was the second time I ran it this year and even for me, it gets your heart beating, you get the adrenaline. The big thing I tell people is to keep your pace even, keep within yourself. Acknowledge the crowd because thats part of the experience, but keep within yourself otherwise youll blow out your energy and you still have the rest of the race to go.The other sneaky thing is because people think Manhattan is an island that its not going to be hilly, but I think there are some sneaky hills here that can take away your strength. Theyve been training for it, but overall I think its the sheer amount of runners.?Finklang: Logistics are also difficult. My wife was on the bus at 6 a.m. and doesnt start running until 10:30 a.m. With our normal training, shes done at 10:30. Its a beautiful day though, so that makes it easier. Everyone is just so excited for the race. You go to some places, they dont know theres a race going on, but here, everywhere you see, people are wearing jackets, running.Collier: As runners, we really appreciate cities that embrace the craziness that is marathon running, so its great to see all these people out.Finklang: Were meeting so many people here from all over. Were from St. Louis, but theyre from really far away.espnW: What are the celebration plans?Finklang: Were staying near Times Square, so there are many fun places to walk around.espnW: Youre going to make them walk after this?Finklang: Its oonly one more mile! We can sit down and have a drink after too.ddddddddddddCollier: I dont think it will hit them right away. Theyll be so amped up. Tomorrow on the plane ride home, theyll probably be very sore and stiff.Alexandra Jamieson and?Laken SpurlockespnW: Who are you cheering for today? Jamieson: Were cheering for everybody. We didnt have anyone in specific we came out for. We live in the neighborhood. We watched his grandmother run a couple of years ago.espnW: How did you guys get ready this morning? Jamieson: Why did I make you get up so early?Spurlock: Um, I dont remember.Jamieson: We had a big breakfast. Waffles and bacon. I want to see the wheelchair racers because it reminds me there are no f---ing excuses.Spurlock: Mom! You owe me a dollar!Jamieson: I get choked up about it! They inspire me!Spurlock: Still, you owe me a dollar. No cursing, Mom, remember?Jamieson: Sorry, I get excited.espnW: Whats the furthest youve ever run? Spurlock: Half a mile.espnW: Do you know how long a marathon is? Spurlock: 24 miles?espnW: Close. Its 26.2 miles. Do you think you could run that? Spurlock: No!Jamieson: No, just not yet!Donna and Don CaravellaespnW: Who is Jeff? Don Caravella: Hes our son and this is his first marathon. He lives in Boston, actually. We live in Connecticut. We came for the day and just got off the train. We have three planned stops. Were in Brooklyn, First and 66th and Fifth Ave and 86th Street.espnW: Has either of you run a marathon? Don and Donna Caravella: No.espnW: Do you think your son is crazy? Don and Donna Caravella: Yes!Don Caravella: He does triathlons, so this is an extension of that. Weve caffeinated, well pick up some food along the way. We got up at 4:30 this morning. Were going to meet him back at his hotel and going to eat. Hes going to be starving.espnW: Whats the Syracuse connection?Don Caravella: He went to Syracuse.Donna Caravella: We paid a lot of money to be able to wear these sweatshirts.Lorrine and John OKaneLorrine OKane: Whats going on?espnW: The New York Marathon. Lorrine: Oh! Were just visiting from Ireland. We wanted to see Central Park.John OKane: Just here for vacation. Five days.espnW: Do you think youd ever run a marathon? John OKane: Possibly. Maybe.Lorrine OKane: Oh, I dont know. We have the Dublin Marathon. But this is much bigger.espnW: Is it more inspirational to watch the elite Olympic runners? Or the everyday weekend warriors? Lorrine OKane: Definitely the everyday people. Theyre just like us. And theyre running a marathon? It makes me feel hopeful.Elizabeth MedhinMedhin: Im here for Ghirmay Ghebreslassie. He won the world championships in China last year and was fourth in Brazil. Im an American, but originally from Eritrea. Its a big day. [Note: Ghebreslassie won the race with a time of 2:07:51.]espnW: Do you run? Medhin: I used to, when I was young. Never a marathon though.espnW: How did you get into the sport as a spectator? Medhin: Its a famous sport in my country. I love watching it, and I love watching Meb Keflezighi. Im a fan of his. Hes from Eritrea. I come every year. I never miss the marathon.espnW: How many years? Medhin: Ten. And I always come to the same spot, near the finish line.espnW: How has it changed over the years? Medhin: Nothing. The fun is still there. ' ' '
