Annet liep (ook)…

 

Wat was het druk, wat een mensen, wat een lawaai. 18000 atleten uit meer dan 70 landen liepen zaterdag 1 november 2008 mee aan de Internatinal Friendshipsrun 2008. Eén van deze atleten was Annet, hiervoor was er getraind op vele zaterdagmiddagen. Met resultaat: zonder problemen werd de afstand van 2,5 mile (4 km.) over het toch wel heuvelachtige parcours afgelegd. Onderweg was er veel muziek en werden veel foto’s gemaakt (zie ook Album)

 

Het parcours liep van het gebouw van de United Nations, via 42st Street, 5th. Avenue en Central Parc South naar de finish bij Tavern on the Green.

Loosduinen - Hallo, ik ben Annet, getrouwd met André, een welbekende marathonloper. Na 10 jaar huwelijk ben ik ook een beetje geïnfecteerd met het hardloopvirus, en vanaf nu – na onze vakantie – gaan we allebei trainen voor New York. André natuurlijk voor de marathon en ik voor de International Friendshipsrun, een loop(je) van ongeveer 6 km. op de zaterdag voorafgaand aan de marathon, bedoeld voor zowel marathonlopers als hun supporters.

Op 2 November 2008 is André één van de vele duizende deelnemers

The New York City Marathon

De 39e editie van de New York City Marathon. Die loopt u niet gewoon, die ondergaat u! "Zij die hem nog nooit gelopen hebben, dromen ervan..... Zij die hem ooit liepen, vergeten hem nooit!" Het is voor ons de slogan die verbonden is aan de marathon der marathons. Met een deelnemersveld van ruim 40.000 lopers, blijft het een indrukwekkend evenement. De Verrazano Bridge op Staten Island is het decor van de start. Wanneer op 2 november, aan de voet van de brug, door het kanon het startschot wordt afgevuurd en de mensenmassa zich langzaam in beweging zet, zullen de rillingen zeker over uw rug lopen.

New York: ‘If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere’
Een stad waar u nooit genoeg van zult krijgen! Het Vrijheidsbeeld, het Empire State Building, de gigantisch hoge wolkenkrabbers, Central Park, maar ook een bezoek aan bijv. de wijken Soho en Greenwich Village zijn zeker de moeite waard. Het is teveel om op te noemen. U zult het dan zeker met ons eens zijn als we zeggen dat New York City zonder enige twijfel de meest dynamische stad van Amerika is. ‘New York City, the city that never sleeps’!

Zondagochtend 2 november wordt de grote dag. Al vroeg staan de bussen van Marathons International voor uw hotel om u naar de start van de Marathon te brengen. Om 10.10 uur gaat het ECHT beginnen... het startschot van de 39e ING New York City Marathon klinkt en u kunt zich opmaken voor een fascinerende 42 kilomter en 195 meter. U loopt van Staten Island door Brooklyn, Queens, de Bronx en Manhattan en in elke wijk zult u verbaasd staan van het enthousiasme van de New Yorkers, die uw prestatie op waarde weten te schatten. Zij proberen u op alle mogelijke manieren aan te moedigen en zeker als u uw naam op uw shirt zet, schreeuwen zij u persoonlijk naar de eindstreep toe. Veel lopers nemen een klein fototoestel mee, om het later nogmaals te beleven. Uiteraard staan ook uw eigen Marathons International supporters voor u langs de kant. Zij worden met bussen naar het Marathons Internationalpunt gebracht, om daar de lopers aan te moedigen.

De finish bij Tavern on the Green in het Central Park is natuurlijk HET hoogtepunt van deze onvergetelijke marathon. Het publiek moedigt u nog één keer aan om ook de laatste meters te kunnen volbrengen. Uiteindelijk volgt daar die felbegeerde medaille en zijn al die uren trainingsarbeid volledig de moeite waard geweest. "Dit is onvergetelijk" is de meest gehoorde reactie van een finisher!

ING New York City Marathon 2008

Als marathonliefhebber moet u 'm eens in uw leven gelopen hebben; de ING New York City Marathon. Deze marathon betekent genieten van alle supporters, het gegil en de aanmoedigingen, maar ook van het loodzware parcours, de bruggen, de boroughs én de laatste heuveltjes in Central Park.

New York City Marathon

The New York City Marathon is an annual marathon road race run over a 42,195 m (26.2 mile) course through all five boroughs of New York City. It is the largest marathon in the world, with 37,850 finishers in 2006.[1] Along with the Boston Marathon and Chicago Marathon, it is among the pre-eminent long-distance annual running events in the United States and is one of the World Marathon Majors.

The race is organized by NYRR (New York Road Runners) and has been run every year since 1970. In recent years, it has been sponsored by the financial group ING. It is held on the first Sunday of November and attracts professional competitors and amateurs from all over the world. Because of the popularity of the race, participation is limited to 37,000 entrants chosen largely by a lottery system, with preference given to previous participants. Runners who are members of NYRR can gain entry by meeting the qualifications for guaranteed entry or via nomination from an official running club. Officially recognized running clubs are allowed two guaranteed spots for members who did not make it in via lottery.

[edit] The Course

The course covers all five boroughs of New York City. It begins on Staten Island near the approach to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The bridge, which normally carries only vehicular traffic, is closed for the event. In the opening minutes of the race, the bridge is filled with runners, creating a dramatic spectacle that is closely associated with the event.

After descending the bridge, course winds through Brooklyn for approximately the next twelve miles. Runners pass through an enormous variety of neighborhoods, including: Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Williamsburg, and Greenpoint. At 13.1 miles, runners cross the Pulaski Bridge, marking the halfway point of the race and the entrance into Queens. After about two and a half miles in Queens, runners cross the East River on the dreaded Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan. It is at this point in the race when many runners begin to tire, as the climb up the bridge is considered one of the most difficult points in the marathon.

Finally reaching Manhattan after about 16 miles, the race proceeds north on First Avenue, then crosses briefly into The Bronx via the Willis Avenue Bridge for a mile before returning to Manhattan via the Madison Avenue Bridge. It then proceeds south through Harlem down Fifth Avenue and into Central Park. At the southern end of the park, the race proceeds across Central Park South, where thousands of spectators cheer runners on during the last mile. At Columbus Circle, the race re-enters the park and finishes outside Tavern on the Green. The time limit for this course is 8 1/2 hours from the 10:10 a.m. start.

[edit] History

The first New York City Marathon was held in 1970, organized by New York Road Runners Club president Vince Chiappetta and Fred Lebow, with 127 competitors running several loops around the Park Drive of Central Park. Only about one-hundred spectators watched Gary Muhrcke win the race in 2:31:38. In fact, a total of only 55 runners crossed the finish line. [2] Over the years, the marathon grew larger and larger. In order to accommodate the growing number of participants, co-founder Fred Lebow redrew the course in 1976 to incorporate all five boroughs of New York City. The marathon grew in popularity two years later when Norwegian Grete Waitz broke the women's world record, finishing in 2:32:30. She would go on to win the race an unprecedented nine times.[2] An official wheelchair and handcycle division was introduced in 2000, and starting in 2002, the elite women are given a 35 minute headstart before the elite men and rest of the field. Thirty-seven years after it was started in 1970, the New York City Marathon has now become the largest marathon anywhere in the world. Each year nearly two million cheering spectators line the course from all different neighborhoods of New York. The marathon is broadcast live on NBC to more than 315 million worldwide viewers.[2]

[edit] 1979

In a normally trivial mistake, runner Rosie Ruiz was accidentally given a finish time of 2:56:29. This qualified her for the 1980 Boston Marathon, where she crossed the finish line with a record time of 2:31:56. It was quickly determined that she had not run the entire course in either race, igniting the most well-known scandal in the history of modern distance running. New York Marathon chief Fred Lebow rescinded Ruiz's time after determining she had not finished the 1979 race, and officials in Boston quickly followed suit.[3]

[edit] 2003

A record 34,729 people participated in the race. The top male finisher was Martin Lel of Kenya in a time of 2:10:30. The top female finisher was Margaret Okayo of Kenya in time of 2:22:31, breaking her previous course record of 2:24:21 set in 2001. In recent years, runners from Kenya have dominated the event. The top Americans were Matt Downin (2:18:48) and Sylvia Mosqueda (2:33:10), both of California.

[edit] 2004

The top female finisher was Britain's Paula Radcliffe in a time of 2:23:10, beating Kenya's Susan Chepkemei by 4 seconds, the closest finish in the history of this race. The top male was Hendrik Ramaala of South Africa with a time of 2:09:28.

[edit] 2005

In the closest finish in New York City Marathon history, Paul Tergat of Kenya barely outsprinted Hendrick Ramaala of South Africa in the final meters of the race for a time of 2:09:30, beating Ramaala by one second. In the women's race, Jeļena Prokopčuka of Latvia won in a time of 2:24:41. Tops amongst the Americans were Meb Keflezighi of California (2:09:56) and Jen Rhines of California (2:37:07). South African Ernst Van Dyk took the wheelchair race in 1:31:11.

[edit] 2006

The top male finisher was Marílson Gomes dos Santos of Brazil in a time of 2:09:58, while Jeļena Prokopčuka of Latvia won the female marathon for the second consecutive time in a time of 2:25:05. Gomes dos Santos becomes the first South American ever to win the race.[4] Stephen Kiogora of Kenya placed second, and Paul Tergat, the 2005 defending champion and former marathon world record holder, placed third.

Seven-time Tour de France winner and former triathlete Lance Armstrong ran in the 2006 race, finishing 868th with a time of 2:59:36.[5] He also ran the same year in the British 10K. Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee also completed the race in 2006, finishing in 5:33:43, and wearing bib #110, signifying the 110 pounds lost during his weight loss campaign.[6]

Amanda McGrory won the female wheelchair race in the time of 1:54:17, the male wheelchair division was won by Kurt Fearnley in a time of 1:29:22.

The 2007 New York City Marathon was held on Sunday, November 4th. It was the final race of the 2006-2007 World Marathon Majors, a two-year series of elite marathon racing that also includes the Boston, Chicago, London and Berlin marathons.

However, there were very few elite American marathoners participating in 2007 because they competed the day before at the 2008 USA Men's Olympic Marathon Trials.

Martin Lel from Kenya won the men's race in a time of 2 hours 9 mins and 4 seconds, completing an impressive double of the 2007 London and New York Marathons.

The women's winner was the world Marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe from Great Britain in a time of 2 hrs 23 mins 9 secs, one second faster than her 2004 win.

Annet loopr

Friendship Run

Annet Blok met start nr. 2409

 

Annet liep (ook)…

 

Wat was het druk, wat een mensen, wat een lawaai. 18000 mensen uit meer dan 70 landen liepen zaterdag 1 november 2008 mee aan de Internatinal Friendshipsrun 2008. Eén van deze athleten was Annet, hiervoor was er getraind op vele zaterdagmiddagen. Met resultaat: zonder problemen werd de afstand van 2,5 mile (4 km.) over het toch wel heuvelachtige parcours afgelegd. Onderweg was er veel muziek en werden veel foto’s gemaakt (zie ook Album)

 

Het parcours liep van het gebouw van de United Nations, via 42st Street, 5th. Avenue en Central Parc South naar de finish bij Tavern on the Green.
