I had the privilege today to watch amazing men and women put their body through a grueling physical test of endurance and run the 2011 Ottawa Marathon.
I began the morning at the 2 km mark of the marathon, the marathoners started the day in light rain and overcast skies followed them along their 42km journey.
I ended the morning capturing the runners at the 37km mark, only 5 km away from the finish.
The lead pack did not change from the start to the end of this race. The winner was Laban Moiben with a time of 2hrs 10min and 17.9sec.
My hats off to those that competed no matter their time result.....just running is exceptional enough.
