Running Marathon

If the urge of running a marathon gets too strong for you after viewing the ‘Happy Runners‘ pictures in the previous post, you might want to check out these pictures. Running a Marathon is more than grueling for most people…it takes tons of determination. Me? Thank you for your suggestion, I’m happy being a photographer on the sidewalk.  But I did garner enough inspirations to kick-start my yoga lessons!

The women in photo 6428 is named Ruth. That is what she always looks like.

Chicken Underwear,

I remembered Ruth very well on that day, she seemed to try very hard and looked so determined that I can’t help but to snap her pictures!

I was hoping these pictures can be ‘named’. Thanks for identifying Ruth!

Did you run that day?


I have run every NYC Marathon since 1993. Here is my 2009 story

Chicken Underwear, you are amazing to have run 19 marathons! I enjoyed reading your blog, especially the part on metrocards! I don’t think I have read them anywhere. I was looking for them in the subway today but no luck!

I wondered if I have taken your picture during the marathon, there were a lot more pictures that I didn’t post on farting camel. If you would like me to check, you can send me a message via contact us, with your full bib number or the last 3 digits of your bib. A description of what you wore that day would help too.

Here is a link to the professional photos they took of me this year.
