The rough part is if none of the people you see are at your pace!

The women's wheelchair marathon was won by Tatyana McFadden, her fourth straight victory, and the men's wheelchair race winner was Marcel Hug, his second NYC win. More than 50,000 people from 120 countries are competing in the marathon this year.

I was able to catch a small portion of the race and he was leading a small group of three. Great to see that held on and got the victory.

Previously, the youngest male winners of the marathon were Americans Alberto Salazar in 1980, Tom Fleming in 1973, and Sheldon Karlin in 1972, who all won first place at age 22. Beth Bonner, also an American, is still the marathon's youngest winner, placing first in 1971 at age 19.

The 20-year-old Ghebreslassie won the men's race in two hours, seven minutes and 51 seconds, more than a minute ahead of Kenyan Lucas Rotich. Ghebreslassie's victory made him the youngest men's winner in the history of the NYC marathon.
