Have a great race! I'm watching coverage right now! Hopefully will get out for a stroller run later if the baby allows.

Watching the elite finishers- so exciting.

I also loved when they showed Katherine Switzer at the start. She's such an amazing woman.

Tv coverage is still on here so we are watching. Jesse and my friend Diana are pretty close on to each other. He predictors show them finishing 7 seconds apart.

And this is cool-- a heartbreak hill camera:

Jesse should be there in about 20 minutes if my math is good. :)

it's great that we can track their times, but i wish there was some way to capture the 'ridiculous enthusiasm'. :D nothing like being a spectator at the boston marathon - which i could be there to see it!

that heartbreak hill camera is great, though - thanks for the link to that, jwolf.
