ING NYC Marathon

nyc_marathon_finishThere it is. The finish line for the ING NYC Marathon which is tomorrow. About 40,000 runners will be looking to cross the finish line. Best of luck to everyone participating.

My picks for the winners of the ING NYC Marathon are Patrick Makau and Paula Radcliffe. I believe they are both in their top form going into the race tomorrow. Patrick is a newcomer to the marathon. He has great speed and tenacity. The guy is a fighter. Paula is the top women marathon runner. With the new course being run for the first time tomorrow, I believe Paula will set a NYC Marathon record for the women.

This year’s NYC Marathon has a twist. It is also the 2009 USA Men’s Marathon Championship. Abdi Abdirahman, Meb Keflezighi, Ryan Hall, Brian Sell, Jorge Torres, and Jason Lehmkuhle are among the elite Americans competing. I believe Ryan Hall will win the Championship. He will be in the top five overall finishers.

I can’t wait to see who will be in the lead at the 26th mile.
