More than 51,000 people participated in this year’s marathon as the world-famous race takes runners through all five boroughs. Runners from across the country and around the world competed in the New York City Marathon on Nov. 5, 2017.
By the time many runners crossed the Queensboro Bridge and entered Manhattan near mile 16, they started feeling the pain not only in their bodies, but on their faces too. Here’s a look at how stressful it can be competing in the New York City Marathon.
Eritrean world champion Ghirmay Ghebreslassie and Kenyan Mary Keitany powered to dominant victories in the New York City Marathon on Sunday.
Keitany became the first woman in three decades to win three consecutive New York marathons with a runaway performance. The 34-year-old took the lead by the ninth mile, made a major move by the 15th mile and won by more than three minutes in 2:24:26.
Ghebreslassie’s victory ended a string of four victories in a row by Kenyan men in the race and denied the African nation a fourth consecutive sweep of New York men’s and women’s titles.
I love photographing the still image and allowing it to tell a different story to all of us. I love photographing wildlife. Gives me such pleasure to see animals in their natural habitat. I have traveled to many of the National Parks in United States and to Africa to photograph. I have traveled across the U.S. to photograph all sorts of parks. Baseball and national parks.
