Marathon comes through town

The Miami Marathon and Half Marathon came through town Sunday morning. My friend Peter sent me these photos, I usually can't get out of my neighborhood due to the street closures and I have stood out on South Bayshore Drive to cheer on a friend (he would text me when he was near), but with 45 degree weather, I just stayed inside.
The streets were kind of quite, I guess due to the cold, usually there are many more people cheering on the runners.
 From the Herald: Benazouzz Slimani, a Moroccan who lives in Italy, crossed the marathon finish line near Bayfront Park in downtown Miami in two hours, 24 minutes and 50 seconds. He is a two time runn-erup and won the race in 2009.

Miami Marathon winner Benazouzz Slimani.
Stephen Njoroge, 25, of Kenya finished the 13.1-mile half marathon in 1 hour, 5 minutes and 8 seconds.
Melchor Surquillo of Peru led the women’s field in the half marathon in 1:13:52, an event record.

The whole story is here.

Only the marathon came through town. The entire half-marathon course is north of the Miami River.
