This is the view from Victor Sailer's room. That is the Tower Bridge, and what a beautiful and clear view! Just a few hours before the marathon. We finished dinner at the Ebury, a local bar-restaurant, and It was tremendous! Most of it was the company, which makes any meal more special.
Then it was a few moments with Victor Sailer, our photographer for most major events. Lisa Coniglio, his partner, was at Cal-Berkeley for the NYRR Distance Carnival. I will post some of those photos soon!
Last news before the event starts is that Martin Lel has withdrawn. He just was not recovering well and tested his leg on Saturday and the physios suggested that Martin not run a marathon at this time. Lel, who wanted to to run for his fourth victory, will
have to do it another year.
