Blom Beirut Marathon 2011
Thanks to the Beirut Marathon Association for giving me a chance to get out of my car and stand with the real media pro’s on race day!
It all started very early in the morning…..yawn.
These are my heroes. They’re unstoppable.
The 5K fun run gave everyone a chance to participate.
The 1K Run with Mom is a great idea, don’t all Mom’s run after their kids anyway?
This was the 1K Special race for VIPS and of course some politicians. It really should be renamed the “Photo Op” race.
King of the Hill- Maxime Chaya
Queen of the Marathon- May El-Khalil along with Sports Legend- Edwin Moses (special thanks to that guy for setting up the shot)
I bet Miss USA Rima Fakih was excited to finally meet our very own Ziad Baroud who just happens to have 60,000 facebook fans!
My advice, do not get in their way! They mean business!
The 42K is the big race but the 10K is the really really big race with over 20,000 participants.
Of course there’s a guy on his cell phone, this is Lebanon!
Our much loved Lebanese Red Cross.
Lots of people were out playing in the street.
