New York City marathon

The New York City marathon returned to the streets of the Big Apple

after a one-year hurricane-induced hiatus. The race winners were

Geoffrey Mutai (2:08:24) and Priscah Jeptoo (2:25:07), cruising on a

course lined with both fans and security in the wake of the Boston

Marathon bombing in April.
