Breakfast and the Marathon

So I want to watch the marathon if I can get up in time.  I'll have some breakfast at this diner and then find a good place to watch the marathon (or break into someone's apartment that overlooks 4th Avenue).  If you'd like to come and join me I'd be happy to have the company.  Plus I'd love to have access to someone with a modern phone that'll let me track some of the runners I know including our very own Luis.

And since this is 10 AM on a Sunday I want to reserve the right to be late.  Just wanted to be upfront with everyone.

    Thanks to those who came--it was one of my more poorly organized meetups but I know what to do next year. Hope to see you all soon!

    I'm just leaving now (remember it's daylight savings). My phone is old-school so please only calls or texts DON'T POST HERE unless you don't want me to read it. 516-[masked]

    So sorry but I over slept. I just woke up so I'm not going to be able to make it on time. Enjoy everyone.

    On the SE corner of 4th Ave & 9th Street is a church with a ramp. A couple of years ago I watched from there and the view was fantastic.

    You really don't need to break in to any apt to get a great view of the race. On street level at 4th avenue between 11th and 12th street is a great spot. 10am is not late at all, in fact it is kind of early. The professional women start at 9:10, the professional men at 9:40. 11am is a great time to see the non-professionals.

    If you search for "ING NYC Marathon" in the App Store or Google Play, you'll be able to download the tracking app. I'll see you guys Sunday.

    I'm going to try to be back in BK in time to see Luis finish but I'll catch up when I get back for sure

    Hey everyone, looks like Carrie's working so no rooftop. I'm going to look into getting a spot in the loft of the Cherry Tree but I imagine that's going to be a hard-to-get spot. Any ideas? The break-in option is still on the table too...

    Oh snap! It's almost time. We'll see if my weekly social runs prepared me ;) My bib number is:

    60573

    They have me starting at 10:55. If that's true, I'll be in the Park Slope area around noon.

    I love this idea! think about how early the runners have to be awake and out there running... if they can do it, you can certainly drag yourself out of bed to cheer them on. Having enthusiastic spectators means the world to a marathon runner (speaking from experience here). I'm out of town that weekend but I hope you get a good turnout and good company.

      I'll do my best but no promises...

    I am happy to chip in alcohol for Carrie's rooftop.

    won't 10am b 2 late for 4th ave?

    October 14, 2013

    • Bill Q.

      the elite runners start at 9:40 so unless they run a 2.5 min/mile pace, we'll be more than fine. Luis and my cousin will most likely be in later waves which will give us even more time. In fact, I expect them sometime around noon.

      As far as the crowds go I think it'll be fine especially if we get Carrie's rooftop.

    I have an awesome patio with grills on 4th, but I don't have my schedule for November yet...

      You DO owe me a drink for being the scavenger hunt champion of the world :)

      Oh right, that too!
