It’s Marathon Monday in Los Angeles. This morning, fifteen thousand runners took to the streets of downtown Los Angeles, on a marathon course that ran through LA, on a 26.2 mile route back into downtown Los Angeles, with a finish line at 5th Street & Flower Street. Hundreds of thousands of cheering fans lined the streets as 2009 Los Angeles Marathon participants passed by, making their way downhill and then uphill (2009 LA Marathon course is fairly fast and flat), through neighborhoods and business districts, experiencing mild LA temperatures, and relying on both internal and external motivation, as they reached the homestretch, and finally the finish.
