New York Marathon, Part Two
The first half of the day the crowds are upbeat. Some come out to cheer their friends, usually holding signs.
Later, as the run goes on, there's a very specific moment when the euphoric swell changes -- it becomes clear there's only a thin pained line of stragglers, fighting out each step. That's almost hard to watch as we sit there, eating pizza.
