NYC Marathon

Here they come...

"LIC Marathon"

The NYC Marathon is set for tomorrow, the weather forecast is good and thousands of runner's will be traversing the boroughs and bridges, pushing past "the wall" to reach the finish line. My studio is located at the exact halfway point in the race - 13 miles. It's pretty exciting waiting for the first marathoner's to appear over the crest of the Pulaski Bridge, leaving Brooklyn and entering Queens. The disabled participants are first to be seen, to great cheering, and then the front runners fly by. After that they just keep coming and coming and coming...thousands of runners from all over the world. I did this painting several years ago and have seen the race many times.

A great event for this great city. Enjoy!
