LA Marathon

The Stadium to Sea marathon - starting at Dodger Stadium and ending at the Santa Monica Pier - went right past my Echo Park neighborhood. 25,000 runners participated in this year's sold out event.

Edna Kiplagat of Kenya (in the white shirt at the back of the pack) was the Women's Winner with a time of 2:25:38

Wesley Korir of Kenya (in the lead, wearing jersey #1) was the Men's Winner with a time of 2:09:19. The winners were done before we even got back home.

There were a few barefoot runners...

And some celebrities...

And a lot of very inspiring people...
