Little Italy in NYC.
Colliseum in Rome
One last shot before leaving. I had a blast at this event and it's one of my most favorite runs ever. Got my post race goodies and refreshments. It's time to head back to the hotel and relax. Ciao, ciao maratona di Roma!
It was a bit windy at the end of the race. Nice during the run, but not when idle.
The man who gave me my 5th marathon medal. Definitely an awesome and fun experience. Gratzie!
Yes, I'm almost done! Woohoo. Marathon #5 will be completed in Rome, Italy.
I hope ULTIMO Km means LAST kilometer! I can see the Coliseum ahead.
I keep telling myself it's almost done, yet I don't see the finish line :P
Where is the finish line?! I don't see it.
I see the 40k marker! Almost done...almost done...
Seeing Vittorio Emanuele II Monument means I'm almost near the Coliseum, which means I'm almost done!
Saying Hi to the watchers at Piazza Navona.
Saw this bridge earlier on the other side. Looped back and heading towards the Coliseum again for the finish.
Rome Marathon had plenty of drink stations.
The lady on the left is clapping for us - thanks!
Not so pretty to look at along the running route, but still cool to see a part of the city I probably normally wouldn't on a vacation to Rome.
This group of people decided to watch the runners instead of attending mass this morning. The pope was there and on the big screen.
Words cannot describe this moment as I ran towards the Basicila. It was totally surreal.
Major road to the Basilica is closed off for the runners.
Running through the Vatican Walls. Next along the running route, St. Peter's Basilica.
