Latest news from the New York City marathon. You probably thought I would never make it to the end. You are absolutely right, I didn’t. In fact right now I am contemplating getting a cab to the finish line. All around me are drop-out casualties, but from what I can glean from texts etc.. the heroic Applegreenies that did run finished, with initial reports suggesting that an impressive figure of €75,000 was raised for Crumlin Children’s Hospital. A massive achievement. Well done to all.
With over a million people watching and over 50,000 taking part it is quite a sight. The Applegreenies were not the only celebrities taking part Ryan Reynolds, Edward Norton, Sean Combs (Puff(ing) Daddy), Katie Holmes, Pamela Anderson, Alanis Morissette and Alicia Keys were also spotted by the determined Applegreenies as they powered past. The oldest competitor was Jonathan Mendes at almost 95 years old.
Now I am really feeling guilty about taking that cab.
