Wikipedia Description: Marine Corps Marathon
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM), affectionately known as "The People's Marathon," is run in Arlington, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The event typically takes place in late October, prior to the Marine Corps' birthday of November 10.
The 32nd MCM, with over 22,000 runners, occurred on Sunday, October 28, 2007 — with Tamarat Ayalew winning the men's title and rookie Kristen Henehan winning the women's title.
The 2006 event included the first-ever satellite running of the event — "MCM Forward" — which took place in Anbar province, Iraq.
As of October 29, 2006, the MCM became the 4th largest marathon in the U.S. The 2006 running of the event was the largest thus far, and pushed it up a spot in the overall rankings. It is the largest marathon that does not offer prize money. The 2006 marathon had a record 34,000 registrants, and approximately 150,000 spectators. There were 20,934 finishers in the 31st MCM. Of those who finished, 39% were female and 61% were male. The overall average run time was 5:01:15. In 2006, Ruben Garcia of the Mexican Navy won the event for the second consecutive year, with an average pace of 5:23 minutes per mile, and an overall finish time of 2:21:20.
The course of the Marine Corps Marathon varies slightly from year to year. The course is USATF certified.
The 2006 course is a new course. The marathon starts on State Route 110 in Arlington, and follows a winding course through Rosslyn with a climb along Lee Highway, then turns and descends on Spout Run and the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Runners then cross the Key Bridge into Georgetown. Runners pass the Kennedy Center and then enter the National Mall, passing the Lincoln Memorial, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, and Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Washington Monument, and the U.S. Capitol. The course returns to Hains Point and East Potomac ...More...

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
