Trailer for The Big Day

Ever seen the NYC marathon? Want to get an idea of the size and scope of the whole production? Check this out.

I could do without the sweeping orchestral soundtrack, but the footage is pretty amazing. I vacillate between excited and mildly terrified every time I watch it. The terrified comes when the course is plotted over the map. I have a feeling I will be seeing that map in my dreams many times over the next 5 months.

  4. I don't know that anyone has actually been 'trampled' (maybe fallen and tripped over), but from what I've seen in races they are helped up pretty quickly.

    google search shows no evidence of a trampling. good to know!
