fujifilm instax | nyc marathon
hello, hello! we didn't really have any special plans this weekend, but ended up having a lot of fun with an unexpected visit to the 2010 nyc marathon from a fabulous vantage point in long island city. we were pretty quiet at first, but when we noticed people had their names written on their shirts we cheered until we were hoarse.
i'm really glad we didn't have to look for anyone in this race because it's stressful when they don't seem to come or you miss them (my brother was in the race like 9 times or was it 11?). it's about 1 pm and this kid was giving high-fives, but the runners were starting to look kind of tired. notice his shirt ...
right behind mr. high five was this young rock band - ntor (noxious total overdose of reality). they were really FANtastic and the runners loved them. sorry to the bass player who was killing it, but i had to edit you out of the photo because there was groupy (mom/manager?) next to you ruining my shot. hey, i'm an artist, too ;).
it was pretty cold and we were beat. cheering takes energy, so we hopped in our ride to head home with a police escort. blogarazzi! not really - the car probably belongs to the band or will some day ;). more like we hopped on the subway and headed home. hope you had a fun weekend.
