The TCS NYC Marathon had great weather, but also some head winds. Molly Huddle went out hard, but when Mary Keitany, Asefelech Mergia and Joyce Chepkirui took off, Molly held back. " Sally Kipyego did not go with them, I wondered if that was the right move." Molly Huddle noted. " I ran a mile in about 5:08, and that was really fast," added Molly.
The long day of coverage for the New York City Marathon begins around 7 in the morning. I push the snooze button on my Iphone 6 three times, giving me 21 more minutes. Then, there is the Taxi ride, trying to see how close we can get to the Tavern on the Green/Marathon Pavilion. I get to West 64th and Broadway, so about a 1 kilometer walk to the Pavilion.

The Kenyan ran 2:13:51 on the tough course which was the original 1896 route leading from the town of Marathon to the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens. Now Yego is returning to the "Athens Marathon. The Authentic" and will be among the favourites for the title
